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.

Would not want our Wisconsin or Canadian brothers running afoul of the man.
The fly boxes have been purged - I am golden!

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:

I have ordered 2 for my spey like flies.

The concept is pretty neat. Found them in the States too.

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.

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

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.
