We do our best to source the finest fly boxes made in this country (as some of you know). So when we were given the opportunity to carry these stunning boxes we were, well, stunned. We had thought they were no longer available. And in fact, they weren't. Not until now and not anywhere else. We bought out the entire stock from the maker himself, and they're limited in number. He will not make any more; he has won acclaim as a Master cabinet-maker and does larger projects. Too bad, in a way.
You should see (and we hope you do), the unparalleled craftsmanship in every detail: from the wooden piano hinges (allowing the box to completely open), to the sweet little push-tab closure device. Look inside: Expertly rendered cork-mounted wooden strips for your flies. See the dove-tail corners? And the box is ultra light-weight, of perfectly usable proportions, leaving the hands unwilling to put it down. Approximately 4 1/2 " long, 3 3/4" wide, 1 " thick.
We offer custom engraving on this and all our wooden fly boxes. Here is a selection of some of the boxes we have engraved. (We'll be adding to this page in the next few weeks as we find the images in our files.) Feel free to email or call with any questions. email@example.com or 734-580-2102.
Now for the icing on the cake: each of these boxes includes a trout fly designed and tied by Dennis Potter, of Riverhouse Fly Company, whose signature flies are recognized world-wide and who happens to be a friend of ours. A pairing of fly fishing artists by which all pairings are measured. Three flies to chose from: Potters Fat Head Beetle, Potter's Opal Trude, and Potter's Robber Fly. Email us your selection at the time you place your order.
