    Smile C&F Fly Protector

    I just replaced the badly hook-gouged foam fly patch on my Simms vest with a C&F CFA-25/S fly protector. It features micro slit foam rows to hold flies while they dry, and more spaces than I'll ever use in a single day. The slits are placed horizontal. It also has a clear plastic top so I don't knock flies off when I put on my rain parka or accidently brush against them. The sides of the protector are open for ventilation.

    It was a bit costly, but like everything else C&F I own, it's a great addition to my tackle. The only thing I intend to change is to remove a little bit of the top over the closest row to expose a few slits for quick, temporary use without opening the top each time.

    Anyone wanting to replace their fly patch might want to give this product some thought.

    Re: C&F Fly Protector

    I went with thier hard plastic case w/the slit foam on one side and magnets on the other. I liked the open sides to protect and dry flys but the patch was total crap.

    the magnets fell out one by one, the pin on the back fell off and finally the two clip crapped out and I lost that overpriced POS.

    i did manage a free replacement after I sent pictures of the missing magnets and pin before I lost it, so there's that. Usually you get what u pay for but this thing is as flimsy and cheap as a fly patch can be.

    im def soured on c&f



    anyone wanna buy a patch/box?

    Re: C&F Fly Protector

    I have the same patch, but I don't use the protector.

    The protector takes up too much of my time...

    ...and I don't have time for any games or bs, Andy.

    Lacey: Where'd you get that pistol?
    Blevins: At the gettin' place.
