Great Accessory,
August 16, 2014

from Lacey, WA
"If you need help in storing and sorting your flies, this box is part of the answer. 'Til now, I had my flies stored in various, smaller, traditional-sized boxes; this fly "suitcase" allows me to consolidate, take along on road trips, and then pick and choose which flies to transfer to the "field" boxes. Recommend getting the insert, too."

Great Box,

"This fly box is bomb-proof. Heavy duty latches close the box securely. The ability to accept the aditional leaf is a nice feature. Better than the similar Cliff's box IMO.Word of warning. The picture depicts a slotted leaf able to hold larger flies. However, I was sent a leaf for smaller flies. Orvis doesn't stock the leaf pictured, but they were able to help me find one to purchase."

Bug Hauler is Big and Tough,
November 3, 2013
from Granby, CT
"This quality boat box is well designed, with steel hinge pins for both the box itself and the optional insert.
The pre-slotted foam holds any size fly securely, typical eastern trout flies to 2/0 and bigger salt water streamers. There is no need to drive the hook point into the foam as with traditional foam insert types. Just push the hook into one of the slots, rather than digging holes in the material.
Also, the Bug Hauler is an excellent "stock box" for the back of a car or SUV"

"I spend around 150 days a year on the water. Many of those days are in wet weather conditions. I have been using these boxes for almost a year and the tight seal on the O-ring works great. From fishing in the rain to leaving my gear in the boat for a day or so, I don't have to worry about water or any moisture getting to my flys."
