Now it seems the fly fishing gear bags of the world are starting to see us as trusty fly box companions. Word travels softly and we hope each person who reads this will spread the good word about our company and true passion for fly fishing and the fly box storage systems we have brought to the fly fishing community. Its been a colorful journey we all hold close each day. The Tribute tube fly box is great for all large size steelhead flies. The box is also enjoyed by our friends fly fishing the Florida saltwater flays in the Keys.

The Tribute tube fly box is dedicated to the fishermen who have mentored fly fishing as a sport and also our company’s personal journey. Some of these people come from distant lands and some are a good stone’s throw away, yet turning and releasing is their style. For all of you who have taken the time to show us new tricks and keep the flame lit, this box is for you. The Tribute tube fly box will hold 44 tube flies of varied size and head shape securely. We have added two rows of foam to provide a hold on loose hooks or a few random spey flies for the day. The foam rows provide 22 hook or fly spaces per row, 88 total for the box. This will let you be creative while loading your own box. The Irideus tube fly holes are off set in order to provide tube fly hackles room, as well as give you a good visual on your offerings. A unique option of this box is the pliable foam. We went with a partially recycled, slightly pliable foam to provide a secure grip on flies of different sizes. We had to consider some of the wild flies used on the East Coast Run Steelhead and our Alaskan efforts. Although some of the beautiful flies gave us a challenge, the cone heads and waking head tubes now have a home. It also goes the other way by not expanding, the foam will hold mini and standard Atlantic Salmon fair. The outer shell is tough and provides waterproof protection from the elements, which will please the saltwater fishermen.

Articulated Cone Head Control This has opened a new chapter for our articulated leeches that have always flopped aimlessly or tangled with each other in compartments. The foam and hook holds will provide a straight hold on some of the more interesting flies on the beat, like your cone head or articulated patterns. It is also saltwater friendly for the flats and mangroves. Whether, you’re a diehard steelhead fisherman or an Atlantic Salmon gentleman this box will begin your life’s next tube fly journey. Thanks again to the people who have given so much spirit and passion to our sport through this expression of tube flies.
