I've been considering that Cliff's Intruder box myself. For you guys that have one, does it work well? I haven't seen anything on the market that would work better.

intruder

when you are carrying a Cliff Outdoors intruder box, where do you carry it? i believe it is 6 X 10 ? and won't fit in a poclet?

i have been looking at soft folders like snowbees or a worm binder that will fit into my jacket poket, but have not pulled the trigger yet on a "box" for intruders.

if you have tube flies, iridius makes a gasket-sealed box similar to C&F's that will hold quite a few tubes. I believe the model is the tribute? quite reasonably priced item.

on the river....I just use small flambeau clear boxes, type you would use for regular lures. Not to much tangling, and they are damn cheap, <$5

i have had problems with these style of boxes when storing wet/fished flies
while sitting, the dies and colors will run... especially from the ostrich... coloring my natural lady amhurst and/or hackle tips
this has happened with boxes with removable and permeant dividers

I took a bugger beast and ran some thin bungie cord inside to hold the flies. It Looks like cliffs intruder box. Works well.

I keep a limited number in the box on the river with me (a dozen at most), and keep like colors together. Of course I always try to dry flies after using...no matter the box...

intruder box

I use a large nubby tack box. Cut off some round head straight pins and push them through the eyes after securing the stinger hooks in the nubby tack. This is how I store my supply of intruders. For actual carrying while fishing, I'm not so fussy. No need to carry the whole damn store around. One or two spares will fit in a smaller box.

same here kweetech, I use the small boxes with the new "rust resistance" chemical in them. They are small enough to load up for a day and the main thing CHEAP AND EFFICENT!

Only problem I have with the cliff boxes is when using mono (slickshooter) for your trailing hook. If you leave them in the same position for too long, the slickshooter will bend that way. Not a problem if you remember to move them on occasion.

Might start putting a tack through the eyes of the hooks into the foam to hold them in Place

Cliff's swinger,

works great for my needs. It stores tubes and strings very well. Their not water tight, but because I have genetic drive to go in too deep, too often, I went to dry bags a long time ago, so waterproof isn't a problem. As far as fly boxes go their not expensive.

a UK based board (from a fellow in Norway no less). One of the most unusual answers was from a fellow who fishes with these types of flies for Atlantic Salmon. The box he said he carried (didn't say if it was two or three rows wide) but in one row (with separators) he has his 'dry flies.' In one section (1/4-1/2 full?) he puts in dry white rice. Apparently this, even one end down in his vest/bag/what-ever, will pull out the majority of the moisture and go a long way in drying out the wet fly.

No idea how well this would work, but it was an interesting 'take' on how to treat the 'problem.'

I like to go with the distinctively venerable... and ULTRA high-tech...

ZIP-LOCK baggie! The sandwich size is perfect for a handful of articulated flies.
