Q tip!

Hey gang: Here’s a couple of DIY fly boxes that are easy to make, very versatile and fit nicely into a shirt pocket. You can buy the 1/4 inch foam sheets at Michaels Art Supply stores. The foam can be cut to fit and easily removed. All the flies washed and left to dry, then reinserted. I have been doing these for years. Using an old eye glass case or a cheap plastic box works great. That’s the Q tip of the day…

Happy New Year.
