      Great Gift! - 4/8/2013

      I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend- The fly fisher who has everything- for his birthday. I thought having his name engraved was such a unique and thoughtful present.

      Replacement - 4/4/2013
      By: from Australia

      Hi Orvis, I origianlly bought this style fly box but with the individual compartments with small fish shaped windows. This box looked much nicer and classsic, however the windows and springs failed to work much of the time. The small steel bar that the windows hinged on kept falling through the holes and some of the latches that lock the window closed failed to open. This was of course a problem when i was out on the water and trying to change fly. As a result, I have discarded the old one with windows and bought the same style just with flat foam and rippled foam, leaving no risk of the windows not opening or falling apart. This simple design of the foam only version is much more user friendly, it just doesnt look as nice.

      The 10 compartment aluminum fly box is fantastic! Excellent quality & has a great retro look to it. I especially liked the engraving & it gives it a personal flair. Can't wait to get out on the river!

      Decent Fly Box - 1/20/2013

      I got the Orvis Lightweight Aluminum Fly Box in the small size with six compartments and a flat foam lid. This box is great and I was very pleased when I received it. It holds small and medium sized flies very well. It is also small enough to fit comfortably in a pocket. An addition on the box that I liked was the ventilation holes that allow the flies in the compartments to dry when the box is closed. This box is great to hold the flies I use for high altitude streams and is lightweight, which is great for backpacking trips. I really liked the small compartments with the spring-loaded lids, which makes it very easy to open and access the flies. Although the box was mostly good I had a few problems with it that made me a little disappointed with this gift. The fist problem is the box has no latch system to hold it tightly closed. The second problem is that the thin metal bar in the hinge slides out a little. Although it is very easy to push back in it is something that could be improved. Another problem was that the flies that are placed on the foam lid have to be relatively small and if the fly hook is curved, such as the Ian’s Brass A** in size 10, when you close the box it will not close completely. This is a place where Orvis could improve by only adding a couple millimeters to the boxes width and it wouldn’t even make the box very bulky. The last very small problem I had was the compartments open with a small wire trigger. This is very nice but you have to pay attention not to put your flies where on of the metal triggers land on the foam lid or the box will not close. Overall, this is a good box but could have minor improvements that would make it a great product.

      Excellent value--classic dry fly box - 1/16/2013
      By: from New England

      I purchased one of these last season to see if it worked well. It works like the well-known classic fly boxes that cost 3 or 4 times as much. I now have two of the small size and two of the large size, each with individual compartments. There is not much space on the foam side of the box so any nymphs or streamers you store on that side will need to be small (probably size 12 or less), but if it were wider, it would be too bulky. Since the boxes only come in one color, I put Roman numerals on them with paint markers to differentiate without having to open them.
