A few weeks ago I made a comment about flies and fly boxes and organization to Jon, I mentioned that I would post up a few pictures of my C&F foam micro slit fly boxes. I have five C&F boxes with the middle swing page. Each box has 528 slits. I also have five C&F boxes without the swing leaf. Those boxes could hold up to 264 flies. These flies are just a very small portion of my entire fly collection, probably no more than 10%. I use the C&F boxes for fly sizes #16 - #20. Mostly nymphs and dry flies without hackle.

I'm beginning to think I enjoy tying more than the actual fishing. I can tie through every season and can listen to classical music, or rock & roll, while I tie. I never get frustrated or angry when I miss the "Big One". Hopefully as the weather warms up to the mid to upper 50's the "catching" bug will come over me and I'll get out on the rivers. Until than I'll just keep tying. I tied three dozen Euro nymphs since Friday.

Fabulous, Matt! I need to do the same, took a bunch of photos of my open boxes but haven't gotten them on here yet. It is very satisfying to open a bunch of fly boxes and admire your own work, especially when you've been doing it for a looooong time. And they even catch fish too!

Thanks for sharing!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Hi Mike,

I'm pretty sure I'm headed you to the Lake Erie streams for steelhead Wednesday through Friday. Looks like nice weather all three days, 50 - 60 degrees. If I go, and have success, I'll post some pictures.
