thank you for the closeup view!
Gorgeous.
Nice flies as well.

My favourite fly is my very own "Fire Bug", it's a variation of a woolybugger, made with orange and red maribou. Rick laughed when I first made it (I just thought it looked pretty) but when it caught all the fish, he was soon tying his own.
:D

Thanks again for sharing.

Very nice! I have some great flies for Central Oregon that would be right at home in these wondeful fly boxes!

I've used some of these flies in Central Oregon. The one's not pictured didn't make it.

Those are really cool! I like small simple boxes like these. They are very stylish. The shape is great too… rounded corners are perfect for the palm or pocket.

I received a call from my son this week saying that if i didn't know what to get him for his birthday that he was flyfishing again and so some flies would be nice.

And then I thought.. hmmm.. shipping a bunch of flies across the country… wouldn't it be nice if they were in a nice flybox made by his Mom
And then I thought: I'm pretty sure a LumberJock posted a fly box a while back.

Sure enough: exactly what I was looking for! I happen to have some barrel hinges and magnets. Now I just need to do the woodworking part :)

Thanks for the inspiration!

These are incredible and I hope you don't mind but I will be making a couple of these for my "gang" lol. Quick question, did you rout out the interior for the foam and cork? or was there some sort of lamination process there? it looks like they are routed out, and I really like that idea because it keeps a slim profile, which anybody using these boxes will find important. because everybody knows you can never have too many of the wrong size and color of flies in your box! lol

Thanks kooldecker for the nice comments. I used a forstner bit to remove most of the material and then finished with a router and chisels.
