Leather Fly Wallet - Help!
 
2 Attachment(s)
I purchased a great leather fly wallet about four years ago from a source that I found on the web. The wallet is typical size but differs from others that I have seen in that instead of lined sheepskin, it has a small three ring binder inside with four felt leafs. I have wanted to purchase a few more for the storage of Carrie Stevens and Atlantic Salmon display flies, and cannot find or remember where I got it. I finally figured out how to get pics in here (I think) and will include one or two.

If I remember right, it was about $30 (likely higher now) and I want to say the person who crafted it was from the midwest. I love these wallets and would certainly appreciate any help from the Flytalk network. PM me or leave a post if you recognize the maker or know where I can a similar one. Thanks.

Good luck finding one of those! It's rare to find them with felt pages any more. I'd really say unheard of. That was a design that was much more common 50+ years ago. Now they all have sheepskin.

If I remember (I still have one), these were offered through E. Hille, a fly tackle purveyor in the eastern U.S. whose ads I haven't seen in years. It's a good carrier for wet flies and smaller nymphs and streamers, but modern fly boxes are generally better.
