Rated 5 out of 5 by JackN As good as they get
The way I see it, fly boxes keep on getting better. This one is as good as I've tried. The last thing you want is to have a hard time removing the fly from the box. With this box you can see the fly you want before opening the box, and removal and replacement of the fly is easy.

THIS BOX IS WELL CONSTRUCTED. THE SLOTS REALLY HUGS THE FLIES IN POSITION. I OPENED IT ON A WINDY DAY NONE OF THE FLIES FALL OUT .THE LATCH KEEPS THE BOX SHUT. THE WATERPROOF FEATURE IS AWESOME .YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS ONE .I PREDICT IT WILL LAST A LIFE TIME. IF I HAVE TO PURCHASE ANOTHER ,IT WILL BE THE UMPQUA BRAND . LL BEAN ROCK!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VdePCM The right size fly box
This small version of the Umpqua Guide Fly Box is just the right size for a day on the stream. It fits well in the hand and has enough room for a wide variety of flies. There's no need to take all the flies you ever tied or bought with you each time you go out! If you should accidentally drop this fly box (as I did the first time I used it) the good news is it floats and is water proof so your flies stay dry.

I am done with foam insert boxes...the slotted inserts hold the flies in place and truly holds more flies than a foam insert box of same size. The space between the insert/flies and closed cover is perfect for standard dry flies so no smashing of hackle. Also, no more rusting of the hooks. I am soooo happy LL Bean is now carrying these fly boxes. The medium size is perfect size for a day outing..

I must say this is a very good box for all the new ice flies I tied. The box holds my tiny flies very well. They slide into the slots easily and are held securely. Umpqua made a winner in this box. I will buy another when I fill all the slots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RancocasFly High quality box
I've used many different styles and brands of boxes to hold my flies over the years, most have been destroyed in short order either due to poor design of latches or foam that falls apart. The Umpqua Pro Guide Fly Boxes have a very sturdy, positive latch that feels extremely secure. The notched foam allows packing flies in close without damaging the foam. I expect this box to give me years of performance, unlike some others I've tried that last months

I'm never buying a fly box other than UPG again - and I'll probably never have to buy another one, since this one is SO TOUGH and holds SO MANY FLIES! (Of course, I'll need a few more colors and sizes to hold flies for each fishery and season...)
The foam configuration in these boxes is incredible - I have a medium box and it holds the flies I had in 3 of my old boxes. The latch is very easy to open, yet secure. I love the see-through sides, and the colors for easy fly ID.
