Rated 5 out of 5 by SavageLawyer Great box for small nymphs and wet flies
These boxes are very well designed and are darn near ideal for small (size 14 and smaller) nymphs and wet flies. They hold many flies very securely and allow you at a glance to see them all. Although they are described as being usable as well for dry flies, unless the dry flies are spinners or very small (i.e., size 18 and smaller), the boxes are so thin that they are likely to crush down the upright wings (or wing posts on a parachute style) and hackle. But if you want a box for your midges and other quite small nymphs, soft hackles and other wet flies, it is not likely you will find an alternative that holds as many flies as securely in a box that is as compact as this. I have about 10 of these in various sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TRetz Excellent for small nymphs
I was initially put off by the price, but after I bought one and used it for a year, I bought another. It is such a treat to have a FLAT flybox in my vest. I use them for size 12-18 nymphs and wetflies. I've had no trouble with rusting hooks. I measured my vest pockets carefully before I bought them, to make sure they'd fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bmwtn Too Thin
These boxes are about 1/8 inch too thin to use for dry flies with parachutes and big stone fly nymphs. It's a shame because I really like the concept and they appear well made.

Well made, I replaced 3 other fly boxes when I put this box in my fly vest because it holds so many flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SavageLawyer Very Weel Designed Fly Box
These fly boxes are very well designed for small nymphs, soft hackles and wet flies (generally size 14 or 16 and smaller). I originally got a couple for midge nymphs (size 18 and smaller), but have picked up a few more for slightly larger nymphs, soft hackles and wet flies. They hold quite a few flies in a very orderly manner. Others have made the point of the clear cover allowing you to see the flies, which is a plus (though not a large plus, since you are generally going to be opening any fly box to pick out a fly anyway and I label my other fly boxes so I can tell what is in them before I open them up). I would not recommend this box for dry flies (other than perhaps spinner patterns) - it is so thin it will likely crush the hackles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FlyFisherRick Ultra-Thin Fly Box is ultra thin
It is exactly as discribed. It takes up very little space in my pack. It is "Ultra-Thin" so if any larger flies are placed in the box it will not close tightly. I have other boxes for larger flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fontane Ultra-thin flybox
This thing is thinner than your iPhone and comes in whatever size your shirt pocket can accommodate. Nicer than that, flies are held in a pressure slot rather than hooking them into foam of some kind, so you can keep using the Ultra-Thin for years. Nicer than that, even the smallest box holds more flies than you can lose in a week's fishing.
And the price is remarkable. Yeah, we drive a Prius, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gunnersdad Ultra thin fly box
Fly boxes can be bulky, anyone carrying more than a couple knows what I mean. The ultra thin fly box allows me to separate my flies to a degree, I carry my nymphs and small soft hackles in it leaving my larger thicker boxes for larger flies like stimulators, wooly buggers and the like. This is an excellent product and as my "collection" of nymphs and soft hackles grows so does my number of ultra thin boxes, now I'm culling by color not just size.

Holds all my small nymphs, more than a days worth even with tough stream bottoms and trees. Could be slightly shorter and occasionally beadheads come loose.
