Traveling Fly Tying Box

Fly Tying Box with Measurements

There are many types and sizes of fly tying boxes available in fly shops and catalogs, but most are expensive. I developed one that has ideal features for use at home and on the go. Depending on the type of wood and hardware you select, you can build your own at a reasonable cost for materials. One quarter to one half inch plywood is commonly used and it can be varnished for surface protection. The dimensions are  20 x 12 x 5 inches and it weighs approximately 10 pounds with tools and materials.  


1. Lid that is divided into three sections for long materials such peacock-eyed feathers, bucktails, quills, rooster capes & saddle hackle. 

2. Fold-out table for materials.

3. Bottom is divided into four sections for the vise, tools, threads and more.

4. Hardwood handle which doubles as the vise platform.

5. Brass hinges, corner brackets, snap locks and a lid chain.
