DIY Fly Box

Do it yourself fly box (DIY Fly Box).  Let me explain what this mystery foam is that came in your package.  Making wood fly boxes, I end up with LOTS of extra foam.  Instead of throwing it out, I thought why not give it away and provide some instructions for making your own fly box.  VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS AT BOTTOM

The instructions are simple.  You need a mint box, some foam (which you might have gotten for free from me) and some scissors.   If you want to “fancy” the fly box up some spray paint will cover the mint labels.
