Classic Fly Box
My first mentor in Maine was a cabinetmaker from Boston. His talent superseded him and the willingness to share his craft, impacted my life forever. In his home hung a Pennsylvania long rifle in curly maple that he’d made. His tutelage began by engrossing me in the history of that piece, how they were made originally, and what they were made I became a cabinetmaker that day / at least in my own mind.
Paul too was a fly fisherman – in the classic style. In homage to him, comes “The Classic” curly maple that is selected, shaped, and finished much like the long rifles we made, finished similarly yielding that warm caramel hue that beckons your spirit, touch and story.
Thank you Paul…
Handcrafted from dyed curly maple, abalone shell, curly maple, mixed metals, and shell make up this box that’s fitted with rippled foam on its interior.
Measures 5 1/2” x 4” x 5/8” and weighs approximately 6 ounces.
- replaceable rippled foam inserts
- solid-brass internally mounted hinges that won’t snag a shirt seam
- magnetic closers capped in abalone or mother of pearl that gently keep the box closed
- a water-resistant finish that feels like butter to the touch
This box has been finished with varnish and requires minimal care. We recommend not leaving the box exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time as it can alter the color of the box. If exposed to excess moisture, leave open to air-dry and apply a few drops of quality lubricating oil to each hinge.
