    Default Missing Fly Boxes


    1 Small green Orvis foam box (with my name on it)
    1 Small clear Plano plastic box
    (actual fly box)
    1 Small white midge box with windows (this box has hundreds of scared, cold, and wet midge imitations)

    If anyone has seen any of these, please let me know. They were all lost on the Clinch, I watched the white midge box float away from me, after I fell (jumped) out of a boat. I am horrible about keeping up with my boxes. lately I have been using Cliff outdoor boxes with the green leash.

    Danny,
    I will keep any eye out for them. At-least you had your name on the Orvis Box. Did you have a number on it as well?

    Rod told me you lost your boxes. We'll be on the look out. I cannot imagine losing my boxes and what it would cost to replace them.

    A LOT of time to tie which is what most of us don't have.......

    How about we send the poor fellow 4 flies out of our boxes? Any takers? That is if he will post an address?

    I'm game. Surely a few of us can make it happen.

    im pretty sure it had my name and email on it, I can just see some old man looking at it "whats a troutmanbrook(at)gmail.com"

    These boxes were not lost at one time, so I have had time to replenish my new boxes. but, it seems as soon as I will get a new box filled up, that's when I lose them. I was mainly posting to see if anyone has found any of these in the past few months.

    Now I have my boxes actually leashed onto me, lol. Thanks Cliff.

    Thankfully for the most part, it seems that my midge boxes are the only ones that are running away(they are the most used).

    Thank you all for offering to help. I tie everyday, and have bought new boxes and have them pretty well re-stocked, as most of my midge ties are under 3 mins a piece. If I would have had the same offers last month, I would have jumped all over it.

    Thanks again for offers of donations, you all seem like a pretty good bunch!

    ......Don't let it out, we have reputations to maintain...


    Maybe you need to put a GPS unit in your boxes like the new iPhone 4s that allows you to find it if it's lost.
