Old Porn video boxes

The idea has been around for some time but had got lost on me until I saw them featured in Dave Edwards blog (Deesox) a while back. Old video cases doubled up and recycled to be used as pike fly cases. Whoever thought of the idea 1st must have been a pike fly-fisherman because old video boxes make the perfect pike fly carrying cases. I spent years looking at over priced, undersized fly cases, yet the perfect solution was staring me right in the face, and was going to cost me practically bugger all as well. Just remember to stick a bit of foam on one side so you have somewhere to stick the hooks in.
I like to fish light….really light! My hip bag has a bottle of juice, my phone, Spare leaders, Traces and my recycled video box with an assortment of no more than ten flies….That’s it! Using these boxes has meant no more carrying 20 or so Jiffi sealed packets around with me filled with flies……which invariably would get squashed all the time and what’s more, using these boxes for this purpose keeps the flies in a better condition.
