This is something I constructed many years ago which has allowed me to tie flies almost anywhere I go:



The BOX…EXTERIOR DIMENSIONS: H- 15 1/4 ” – D-15 1/4″ – W 13 3/4″

Many years ago, up on the East Fork of the Carson River, near Markleeville, CA, I took my rig in for a week of Fly Fishing. Four wheel drive is required to get into this spot …there is a river to ford and thankfully, not another person around. This was in July, just after the 4th. I got into a wonderful time of catching very large Cutthroat Trout on drifting October Caddis larvae…the only problem…I did not have enough larvae patterns in the right size to keep on hooking the Trout. Now, I always carry fly tying materials with me when I go into remote locations. In those days, that consisted of hooks, fur, feathers and synthetics in a collection of cardboard boxes and cigar boxes. So, I set to tying up these little guys on a wooden bench. A huge gust of wind came up and blew my boxes and materials off the bench and into the river…THAT experience resulted in my building the following box – which was featured in an old issue of Fly Fisherman Magazine…it has been everywhere with me since that disastrous occasion…

Tim,

That's a very neat box and much more advanced than Jan Ole's and my tying boards... which still draw a lot of attention and traffic, so people must find them useful. Yours is a much more complete piece of furniture, though. Nice!

Martin
