I have been using pill boxes for years. I use the ones that have four slots each. I put the name type and number of the hook on the side of the box and put the size on the top of the compartment, i.e. 10,12,14,16. They work great, they used to have smaller pill boxes but I ant find them any more. I have also used some clear plastic fly boxes for my travel bag because they don't take up all the space. yahoo.gif hysterical.gif yahoo.gif
I was tying flies and fly fishing before it got trendy.

Howdy! I've been off the forum for a while and frequenting the RBF as I have expanded my horizons. That's another way of saying I've found another way to spend money. Just clicked on this post and got some good info. Dubbing, chenille, and tinsel will have a new home. A close friend got me onto something else- plastic snuff cans. Clean them out, peel the label, clean the glue off with paint thinner. Viola! You have a handy storage box for extra flies, good cheap fly boxes for your vest. My friend gets by with a fanny pack, a couple of pieces of tippet, a couple of snuff cans and a few other items while I struggle into my overloaded vest. Enjoyed the post and good to be back. See you again.

I collect these from my mother in law, shes on 8 or 9 meds. I use them when I give flies away to friends and family. I leave on the "Take plenty of water" lables" Then make my own prescription lable "Use for stress releaf as often as possible."
