Umpqua UPG Boxes have been a staff favorite for some time, and now they're available in smaller sizes. Perfect for the minimalist angler or day trip boxes. The LT Mini Standard Box has TPE injection molding which has incredible gripping properties and low memory that seems to last a lifetime. The Mini Standard is a slim single sided box that is perfect for the angler who utilizes a small pack or enjoys low profile organization.
This box, along with Fishpond/Tacky's Daytrip box, is the perfect size for me. I've used this box for three years and it's still just like new. I don't pack mine full, but still fit 40-60 decent size dry flies in each box (mostly size 12, 14, and 16). Anyone using this box for smaller wet flies and midges will be able to fit a lot more than that. I haven't had any issues keeping flies secure and the magnetic closure is tight.
Tying primary Euro style jigged flies I needed a box that would hold barbless hooks with easy removal and segregation. This box is exactly what the doctor ordered and the rubber slits hold anything from 24’s to 8’s in my experience with the perfect spacing for dries, streamers, and midges alike. The magnetic corners of the box hold cover closed to make sure flies aren’t falling out in pack. The box is also surprisingly water resistant as well. Great choice, pick up a few!
