    Default Wooden Fly Boxes

    It has been a while since I posted anything so I thought I would share my latest project. Since retiring in June, I just do not have time to do everything on my list. During the winter, I was making European mounting plaques for a taxidermist and was saving all the scrap knots from the walnut boards ? I hate to waste anything. Here are a few of the fly boxes that I have made from the burls and some curly cherry.

    Here is one of my thread carousel that I just finished for coustmer made from purple heart wood.

    Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.

    very nice craftsmanship, what, (if anything) do you use to hold them closed? if you dont mind me asking
    if every cast caught a fish, it would be called "catching" not "fishing"

    On my prototype I used a 3/8 very high grade rare earth magnet, but you had to be the hulk to open the box. Now I am using a lower grade 1/4 diameter magnet, and they have a very nice pull to them.
