Absolutely Awesome Box

Reviewer: from Gloucester, MA

As the other reviewer mentioned, you can get a truly awesome number of flies into this box without forcing anything at all. I have only just started using it, but the material quality seems good and I don't have any concerns about durability!

One box to rule them all!

Reviewer: from Western Canada

I recently got this 'Weekender' box and a 'Streamer' box. My 'Streamer' box will hold my Deceivers and larger Buggers, Zonkers, etc. that I use mostly for Pike. But I am putting *all* my other flies (for all other species) in this 'Weekender' box.

Overall the box is well made: seems like good water sealing, 2 zerust tabs (1 per side), built-in tethering loop (you supply your own zinger or string), easy opening/closing lids, strong foam, etc. So I've started moving my flies (i.e., buzzers, dries, soft hackles, nymphs, hoppers and other terrestrials, and smaller streamers and bugs) from 2 other boxes (each about 4 x 6 x 1.5") to this one. I'm going to have lots of room left over. I think this box could easily hold 200-300 flies, depending on their size. Unless you fish a gazillion patterns in a gazillion sizes then this UPG 'Weekender' box might be the only box you have to carry all season.

Of course, the 'Weekender' it is a big box and it is bit heavy. If minimalism is your game then this probably is not best choice for you.

(Note: The box colour is actually a brighter green than the picture suggest. IMO the actual colour is more attractive than the photo.)

worth it

Reviewer: from shenandoah valley, virginia

It isn't easy for me to spend $40 on a fly box, but I feel it was money well spent. I was able to consolidate the 3 boxes I normally carry into this one box, with room left over. The long slits are the best I have seen for streamers. The magnetic areas replaced my midge box. Like other Umpqua boxes, it is well made and the latches are easily operated with one hand. It is a little heaver than average, but it is lighter than the 3 boxes I was carrying which lets me free up a lot of space in my hip pack.
