Review - The C&F All In One Fly Box

A brief review of the C&F FSS-2 fly box. Danica Dudes fly fishing blog.

For a long time now, I've only been using a small fly patch or a compartment box when going fishing. But the patch got too small and the box way too messy, so I decided to search for a new one system to story my flies.

This fly box (I will not call it by its precise name "FSS-2" because this seems awkward) made me stop scrolling on my laptop, as it said something like "flexibility in content design". YES, I thought, that's what I want! A two side flybox. One with compartments, the other how I like it to be.

C&F  also sells a larger fly patch, that works with the same insert system.

So todays review is about this exact fly box from C&F, the FSS-2.

You can buy it for 24,90 €, spare inserts cost 10,90 €. Not much in my opinion! 

I ordered nearly every insert there is, for small midges to large streamers. Seemed to me like a clever plan!


It has a very comfortable size. You can put it wherever you want, still able to carry dozens of flies with you. Enough for me at least...

The compartment side has a magnetic top, so your flies won't stop mixing around the box.


As expected, the built quality is superb and C&F thought of every fly fishers needs, adding little rings on the side of the flybox to attach the box to a lanyard for example.

This review reflects only my first impressions of the fly box. I will fish it and tell you my opinion in a few weeks or months.

But I really like the concept of this fly box. Being able to easily re-arrange your fly box when visiting another river or fishing another setup is a big plus for this box.


The materials used are first grade and the inserts fit perfectly.

There also is a attachment for the nail knot tool in the middle of the box.


To put it all in a nutshell, I think I have found my new favorite fly box. 

Really nothing I would add to this flybox. Without a doubt, this could be also your solution for storing flies.
