Rated 5 out of 5 by ChadS Price is low for the quality
I absolutely love this fly wallet. The quality does not match the low price of the product. I started using it the day I got it and would highly recommend to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bangorme What is fleece?
I'm having a problem understanding why this product has so many positive reviews! I bought this over the winter and just used it last weekend. The flies slip out of the wallet. The "fleece" isn't like what you have on the LL Beans vest fly patch, it is more like felt. The flies don't grab the "fleece," they just lie there. When you open the wallet, they tend to slip out. In fact, the flies near either end can slip out even if the wallet is closed. I must of lost five flies this weekend, and found at least five others on the ground or hooked to my wading shoe. This is not a functional product.

This is the kind of quality you seldom find. The material and construction is excellent. The kind of workmanship that you hope to find and seldom do. If you fish nymphs and streamers you would love this product.

Beautiful but not so practical case. Wanted something long for streamers, but case was too bulky and 3rd flap was crushing flies. I bought and LLBean Saltwater plastic case and much happier with it.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharleneL Beautifully made
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RebSue Maine Guide Waxed-Canvas Fly Wallet
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.
