On a recent fishing trip, I met a guy from Southern California. He was in the Yellowstone area to fish for the entire summer. He showed me some wooden fly boxes that he makes. I couldn't believe how beautiful and practical they were.
Both sides have a decorative wooden inlay.
The box is Quilted Cherry with inlays of Karelian Birch.
The interior has cork strips for the flies.
Each corner has a strong little magnet to "snap closed" and stay closed.
The brass hinges are very strong!
Unfortunately, I missed seeing him before I left and did not get contact info. I only know his last name which is "Murphy". I don't think he is a tier, so I will probably never get his full name or a contact.
Thought others might want to see his handiwork.
