I'm battin' a thousand today
should've posted the dimensions as well . . .
6' x 4" x 1" plus add an extra 1/8th for the hinge.
Can't help you with the neat thing though . . .

That looks nice but kind of wide. Doubt if I could handle that width. More research needed. Plus I don't like having my flies so orderly.

The Salmon is it
Yep, I got the regular one 'cause I didn't specify. My bad.
Here's what mine look like

|removed_by_request||Place in the states has 2 models one titled Salmon. I assume you mean that one, since she is deep.|

just a note of caution
Just got mine and I received the large shallow box, not the deep ones I had wanted. In the picture at reels 'n deals, they looked like the deep ones but in retrospect, I should have checked rather than assume. You need the deep ones to store the larger speys. The ones I received are fine for small speys, streamers, and large nymphs but they would only hold large speys on one side or only if carefully spaced, on two. They were priced at 6.99 pounds or about $11.00 USD.
If you order them, make sure you ask for the deep ones.

|removed_by_request||A fly box Peter told me about, pretty neat for $21 US.|

Whats a "Fox Box" ?
|02-05-2003 04:56 AM|
Fox box is pretty cool for speys. They were built just for them.
PM me for url.
|02-04-2003 08:58 PM|
spey is the way....
I gotta fill up my boxes. I was looking at the Scientific Anglers C and F design boxes, but I am not sure yet?
|02-03-2003 07:19 PM|
I have ordered 2 for my spey like flies.
The concept is pretty neat. Found them in the States too.

BTW, on another business trip but my wife called me to say that my Fox Boxes have arrived. They will be filled with 'legal' flies only. :hehe:

Reminds me of how I met one of the forum members.
I was fishing for kings with my dad last september, when a large SUV comes barreling into the parking lot. A man dressed in what looked to be a warden's uniform jumped out and made straight for me. I was running through my mind trying to remember where my license was. As soon as he got closer, he introduced himself and said he had seen the spey rod from the roadway. He pulled his spey rod out from his truck and fished with us for a while, in uniform.

I doubt they would check boxes, but it is better to be informed than tell DNR guy "I did not know".
Would not want our Wisconsin or Canadian brothers running afoul of the man.

MJYP : You forget about one key michigan river.
If they ever made me empty my entire fly vest they would miss their lunch break for sure. I wonder what I would find it if I ever emptied the entire thing. Has not happened in 20 years.
P.S. I will make sure they check the Canucks though, they use some really big hooks up there from what I have seen.

Hey, guys - let's think this one out.
If you are not snagging or lining, or some other illegal act, has a warden ever asked to see anything other than your license, and (rarely) what's on the end of your line?
At least that has been MY experience!
If they REALLY were looking for some MAJOR violations (e.g. terrorists), they might "pat you down" and look in your vest and flyboxes, but the instances of THAT are extremely low probability. And, in that case, I am sure they would be accompanied by the State Police or FBI!
