The craftsmanship of these fly boxes is incredible and surpasses my expectations.
The smell of the wood has me captivated while the smooth lines have intrigued my fingers all day.

I tend to delude myself every year when I drop thousands of dollars on all the latest and greatestrods, reels and whatever else Simms makes,
thinking that at least it will last me my lifetime and maybe more. In reality, I would be surprised if most of my fishing gear last me until the
next greatest thing comes out, let alone ten years; the expectation is this fly box.

Not only do I know it will be a cherished piece of my equipment but in reality it’s the only piece of
equipment that I will want to make sure that my future generations take with them in remembrance of me.
