Default LOST (now FOUND!) - Fly box in Cheeseman Canyon 1-1-08

While i wasn't paying attention my flybox jumped out of my vest. 2 sided Plano clear box, 6"x4" foam on both sides. Could be next to the river or it went for a swim. Floats like a cork so should be visible. Can describe contents - they are all my own ties.

you ain't kidding Phil! We were only on the water an hour when i noticed. Looked thru the snow, rocks, under everything for a 1/4 mile downstream.. nuttin. Trying to keep 2 rods double rigged and NOT break off.... yeah right. Best part was a Blad Eagle flying 20ft over our heads hunting - way cool!!!

Reward for return of fly box

I was thinking about a cool thing we sold when I was working at Radio Shack - don't know if they still have them or not, but it's a Rivet system cell phone chain, and there's an adhesive part that was made to go on the back of a cell phone battery cover, but I can definitely see it stuck to the smooth side of that box, and there's a quick-release that attaches to a chain (one of those 'ghetto wallet chain things'), that has a clip on the other end that can fasten to your vest, wader belt, whatever...

look here

That's a nice midge box, Jim. Glad to see you got it back.
