Store Availability

Designed for regular fly anglers using dry flies and nymphs

BENEFITS

Traction

Two different sides with special grooves for dry flies and nymphs

TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

DIMENSIONS

13 cm x 9 cm x 4 cm. This box is sized to fit inside most vest or chest pack pockets.

CAPACITY

Store up to 177 flies.

CLOSURE

Each side has its own closing system. Once closed, the lid presses against a seal that protects your flies from water unless submerged.

TWO DIFFERENT SIDES

On one of the 2 sides is a solid block of foam with a series of slits that can be used to store nymphs on hooks from size 08 to size 22. The nymphs stay flat and are easier to grab hold of when fishing.
The other side is made of grooved strips of foam that can be used to store dry fly hackles without crushing or damaging them. This will keep your flies buoyant for longer.

Great box, shame about the label adhesive
Simeons (United Kingdom) Used for 3 to 8 weeks Verified purchase What is a "Verified purchase"?

Where review is marked as "Verified purchase" confirmed by Decathlon, this means that we could verify that the client who filed this opinion has purchased the product from us.

We can confirm purchases for the reviews expressed on a request by e-mail after purchase or when the customer has this review from his personal space.

If a review is not marked as "Verified purchase," this does not mean that the author's review has no experience with the product. They may have given their review directly on the site without unique identification, or the product has been offered or paid by someone else.

The label "Verified purchase" let's help you judge the reliability of a review.
To be honest, you'd be hard pressed to find a box of this quality at this price point. Although the seal is not entirely waterproof, it's not an issue as an angler should really leave flies to dry in the open air prior to storing away.

The major issue with this equipment, is not the box itself, but the excessive amount of adhesive used on the label attached to it. I used various methods to remove it but even with acetone the situation just got worse, culminating in sticky opage residue all over (literally) the box, ruining both its functionality and appearance.

In Decathlon's defence, I used their Whatsapp customer service number to provide photographs and an explanation to why I thought the product was let down by this overengineered labelling, and they happily sent me another one and covered the postage costs.

For this reason I will score the product 3 out of 5 stars but this does not reflect on the product itself, which is more than competent for its intended function.

Congratulations to the Decathlon Team for understanding the problem and being prompt and efficient in rectifying it.

For anyone wanting to purchase this box, I recommend avoidingf solvent to remove the label, opting for almost boiling water (careful, it's hot!) and a sharp implement like a scalpel. Take your time and it will come off, but don't rush the process.
