I’ve almost pulled the trigger on buying one of the big bugger boxes or boat fly boxes from the big name companies more than a couple times. Each time, my better judgement stopped me from spending the $40-50 on a fly box, but I kept my eyes out for a deal. Eventually, I found a screaming deal on a blank box, and figured I’d make my own for under $10.
- Box – I found these green Flambeau Tradesman 10.5 boxes on sale for $1.84
- 6mm Foam – You can find 6mm online. I was a bit impatient and didn’t want to wait for it to ship. The local craft store had one piece of 6mm foam left. Of course it was pink.
- Spray Adhesive – My wife had some of this spray adhesive laying around. Pretty simple to use.
- Utility knife
