    Re: flyfishing products that you can buy elsewhere for half the price.

    Jmoore, you might want to check out Eddie Bauers boat bag. Which sells for $150.

    Your right you do need something with a water proof bottom and the plastic bins you can buy almost anywhere, and they come with a top. Without a top, getting caught in a rain storm will turn that high tech piece of flyfishing equipment into a low tech bucket.

    To look good is to fish good

    I just use a five gallon bucket....as my seat too, if it gets a hole in it, I put a blue plastic tarp over it........no problem

    The buckets are free..........we get pickles in them at McD's.........if you are interested, PM me.........

    Well if all you are looking for is a plastic tote, I would suggest the type with the gasket seal and locking latches. They have been much better for me than the snap on lids.

    The five gallon buckets also have a gasket...it is connected to the lid (or seat shall we say)...Pickle juice never splashes out, and they are free!!!!!

    Yea, and you can never get the stank of the pickle juice out of the bucket. I used to get mine from the dumpster of the WAZU sandwich shop up behind my shop.

    Keep your flies in the bucket, you will get more strikes..

    You can get the pickle stank out if you soak the bucket over night with hot water and light dish soap...but why would you want to?!!!?!?!!!???!

    Or put them through a commercial dishwasher a few times........


    Or just buy your $85.00 nylon pouch....

    They were Mr. Pickle buckets and I would never buy a pouch when the milk crate I have in the back works just fine.

    Does that milk crate belong to you, or did someone not get their deposit back..

    And it isn't waterproof...I think you should seal it with a blue tarp and bungees....

    Yea, Fin-Ite Farms.

    The crate is wrapped in a blue SUV, as waterproof as that can be.

    Did a little work this morning and put together this simple Umpqua like tailgate organizer. To make it waterproof I would add a black plastic contractor trash bag with a twist tie.

    19.00 on Amazon. I had to think outside the box, and that process led me to the internet, and ultimately find thisClick image for larger version.
