Rated 4 out of 5 by DoctorGonzo great construction,great price,almost great design
This is a beautiful product that feels very solid and well-made from the moment you take it out of the packaging; soft canvas and leather, big fluffy shearling, hearty snaps; a truly handsome piece. If you take into account the price of this fly wallet, it's staggering how much you are getting compared to anything similar on the market. The few other companies still offering a fly wallet like this are definitely using some very generous and targeted price mark-ups that all too many fly-fisherman are willing to pay. The bang for your buck on this wallet is phenomenal. Sadly, there is a thorn on this rose and it's kind of a big one; the design. This REALLY should have been a simple bi-fold wallet and that third fold left on the drawing board; this is a case where holding (and being able to advertise the capacity to hold) more flies has let the on the river functionality of the product down. The third fold makes an otherwise clean, manageable, and low profile(easily stored) fishing tool into a clumsy and very bulky piece of gear that might get relegated to the pile of unused gear for too many fisherman and dissuade many more from ever purchasing it and that is a real shame. The thickness of the wallet closed up, even without any flies in it, is quite surprising and is going to require some serious space in your vest or pack; again I think that is a tragedy for this otherwise great wallet. I also wouldn't turn my nose up if they went with a zipper instead of buttons, to minimize the possibility of losing flies out of the open ends. All that said, I love this wallet and will definitely be using it, but I'll certainly be on the lookout for a bi-fold version of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by psychogardenmom Perfect gift
Bought this as a Christmas gift for our son. When I showed it to my husband, he really liked it so he got one for Christmas too! They love how it folds nicely together; has 3 sides for flies; great fluff to load hooks into. Our son has an older style of this but he likes the ll bean one better because it can hold more flies. They've already taken them out fishing over the holidays! It is bigger than a $ wallet so don't expect it to fit into a regular pocket. It is typical fly wallet size though. Thank you for a great product & gift!

Gave as a gift to our son who is an avid fisherman ... but has not tried fly fishing yet ... He LOVED it. It is beautifully made and came in the mail quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by livingonthelake Nice old school fishing accessory
Nice quality and workmanship. Good way to store streamers. Gently pressed flat without crushing and wicks away any residual moisture. It's also nice to have something traditional and old school in your pack.

This Fly Wallet is a nice waxed canvas fly wallet & is very compact as well as portable... The sheep-skin inserts work well for hooking the fishing flies in..

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fortunecookie Pretty good overall.
I ordered two. They are a little bulky, and one had half the cushioning of the other, but the guys didn't notice and seemed very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gr8Hornd Nice Streamer Wallet
Nice Large fly holder.
Good for Streamers
Will flex if fly vest so will not break
Will not protect sensistive hackles so use for flies that can be flattened.
Make overseas, quality looks to be acceptable
Perfect for double jointed streamers
