WTB - Tube Fly boxes

Looking for tube fly boxes akin to the Wheatley or PlanD designs. Something portable for the river, not wooden. Pure tubes, not shanks.

If you've got something lying around to part with, please reach out.

I have a very lightly used Cliff brand Swinger box if that’s of any interest.

Checked some pics of the swinger, and it looks kind of small. I'm hoping to store about 40 tube flies varying from very small to about 5" sunrays/temples.

Thanks for the response!

Something like this works well and is pretty cheap:

Yeah, if I can't find anything that holds firmly, I'll end up using planos again. Don't like the flies rattling around and getting jumbled in those, but yes, it works.

Thanks for the suggestion!

The Plan D tube box is also really nice but honestly I think the Plano box works just as well for a fraction of price...

I'll happily let you have this one if it suits you, that's a 5 1/2" Sunray in there so it will hold a dozen long tubes off the hook. I've gone back to a couple of stout ziplock bags (one for weighted, one unweighted) for my tubes, with a small box of hooks separately. All of that and a spool or two of maxima easily fits in the chest pocket of my waders...low tech, but works for me. PM me your info, if you cover the postage I'll send this one to you.
