I tie flies daily and give most of them away to my buddies, family, etc. Although I've never had a problem with the more expensive hook brands, the Green Caddis hooks I purchased are the ticket.

Getting the flies in and out of the foam is easy and a box of weighted clousers doesn't tear the foam off the back of the box. I keep boxes in my pontoon and in my boat. I like the exlarge ones as they hold plenty of flies. Great boxes... read more Waterproof Fly Box - Easy Grip Foam 6.5" x 4" x 1.5" Great price and quality I have bought these on three different orders and have been thoroughly satisfied.
