Best Fly Fishing Tackle Box

fly fishing fly box

One of the most important aspects of fly fishing is making sure you have great gear to make your life easier. When I fish rivers and streams in the back country, I am usually walking for a long distance, trying to find new fishing holes or to get to my favorite ones. When it comes to the gear that I am packing in (often over 3 miles from my truck), I want to make sure that my gear is light and of good quality.  

Today’s blog post is coving fly fishing tackle boxes or fly fishing cases, which ever name you like to call them works. At Zinger Fishing, when we were in the process of making tackle boxes, we wanted to make sure they checked off all the must haves on our list. Light weight, waterproof, rust inhibiting, holds a decent number of flies, fits in the fly vest nicely, and most importantly we wanted to make them durable.  

 

Zinger Fishing offers a few different cases and sizes. With our smaller case sets, you get an amazing deal when you buy them full of flies.

This waterproof fly box is perfect for those of you who like to carry a variety of flies with you. I personally use this case on every trip I go on. It holds up to 121 flies and has tight sealed rubber gaskets to keep them dry. The clear lid makes it easy to distinguish what is inside if you have multiple cases in your vest or backpack.  

The dimensions are 7in x 4in x 1in.

Zinger Fishing streamer fly case that fits 636 flies 

fly case

When I go fishing with my old man, he has everything with him. He loves this case that fits 318 flies on both sides, for a total capacity of 636 flies. With this sort of selection, he is always able to find something that the fish are biting.  

This waterproof fly case has slit foam on both sides and Zerust rust inhibitor protection, which protects against hook corrosion by drying the flies out.  

The fly case is a bit larger but fits perfectly in a backpack or the back of your fly vest. If you are using this case for streamers only, the number of flies you will be able to fit in it will decrease.  

The dimensions are 13in x 10in x 4in.

Fly fishing is difficult enough as it is, which is why us anglers need the right gear to help us out every way possible. Having the right fly tackle box is a must. It can save you the time of trying to find the right fly, and it can save you money by your hooks not getting corroded. Good solid gear is worth its weight in gold.
