I pretty much do it by type, but there is always some overlap. The most recently used flies end up in the flytrap drying off. I don't expect that I will ever get caught with nothing of a particular fly type doing it this way.
The fly wallets are a pain in my opinion. They mat down anyhing but a very flat streamer or nymph, and take a long time to dry out when they get wet. If my wife hadn't been given me mine before we were married I'd chuck it. I think that Cabelas has them now.
The best box IMHO is the Morril (sp) all foam models. Only problem with them is that if you drop it in a river it may be 30' away before you notice its gone.
