    Default Let's see your small stream flybox

    So I've been paring down the amount of junk, err I mean gear, that I routinely haul astream for most of my small stream fishing. One of the areas I've tried to trim was the amount of flyboxes I carry. Here is a pic of the one I'm using right now. What are your thoughts on what's in there? Let's see some pics of your small stream box(es)!



    Thanks

    Can't say that I see anything wrong with what you have there. Pretty good selection of flies that should have you covered.

    My box is a C&F compartment box, and I just customize it for the time of year I am fishing. So, in winter & early spring I have BWO, blue quills, quill gordons, march browns, etc. in it. This time of year it has more stimulators, Adams (grey and yellow), neversink caddis, green/pink weenies, etc. And finally for fall I throw in some terrestrials, orange caddis, big nymphs, and streamers.

    That David Knapp and his Tellico Nymph has too much influence on my fly box, I know

    HEY! That Looks familiar. Except for the beadheads. And all of my tellicos are ones I have retrieved from rhodo along middle prong. I clean up on free tellicos over the winter. But some of them are pretty rusty from spending tourist season stuck to the leaves

    I usually carry more princes with me but I need to restock due to rhodo catches. I'm probably keeping Duncan supplied with them .

    I am completely over all this equipment, I now wear a thong and flip flops and fish with this!

    And you only fish on Saturday's and you like to sneak in right beside someone who has already warmed up your spot, huh?

    Thank you for that disturbing mental image.
