One box to rule them all!
Reviewer: A viewer 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.)
