General Discussion / Re: Best way to store flies w/ weed guards
« Last post by Puck on Today at 04:40:43 AM »
If they have weed guards you don't want to deform the mono, so storing them loose in a small open style box may be the safest way to make sure the guard will remain in place.

I've tried the MFC boat box for my flies, and the only issue I have to date is still the mangling of the weed guards.

I don't tie many weed guards, as one of my favorite flies is the bendback.

General Discussion / Best way to store flies w/ weed guards
« Last post by StrykerDM on August 30, 2015, 02:35:11 PM »
been tying up my first salt water flies and am starting to put weed guards on them now.  I'm not sure if they'll fit in the slits in my c&f boxes with the guards though.  How do you guys carry your flies with weed guards?  I was looking at gettinrbg a big MFC boat box but if it's better to just carry them in a plastic Plano box loose, I can do that.

My son and I were there last March. Landed 5 on conventional plastics. One day on the flats with fly rods two misses. I'm ready to go again.

GPS points sent to the folks that are signed up.

See you guys tomorrow morning at 0700.

We are meeting so late in the morning to give the Anahuac Vampires a chance to go to bed.

I plan to spray my clothes down tonight as I load the kayak trailer.

It was a version of the "squirminator," which by far had the most strikes.

Downside of this fly is the tail I was using isn't very durable so after a few fish there wasn't much tail left.   :-\
