Tube fly box redux

Here is my contribution! Spring music wires with hooks to hold them down after the tube is slid on. Works like a charm, but is a lot more hassle than the lovely box with the foam!

If everybody used shoe horns, they'd catch 'em all on shoe horns.

Looks like the set up in my vintage Hardy Neroda boxes. This system holds all different sizes and styles of tubes. You can also stack 3 to 6 of them on each wire in different sizes and weights. The stacked wires hold the flies elevated off the case sides and this doesnít crush the hackles, picked out seal fur bodies. or shaped Dee style wings.. I find they dry faster & fluffier when the box is opened and left to air dry in the breeze.

Those vintage boxes are way cool. Tube flies are very old news over in England and Scotland, so it stands to reason that they came up with good storage methods long ago. I did not realize there were any tube fly boxes available commercially, and I got tired of fishing them out of ziplocks on the river! You are right about leaving the box open for sure. If it is not raining. Which it is. Quite commonly.
