Cigarette Case Fly Storage

Don Sicard of Casco Bay (Maine) Fly Fishers showed me this innovative fly storage scheme. He ties marabou streamers with a tandem hook set up. He clips off the bend of the first hook, leaving the shank with the fly tyed on. The second hook is dressed with tinsel or braid. This arrangement prevents short strikes.

He stores his flies in a debonair-looking cigarette
case. Don cuts plastic straws to fit the case and places each fly in its own straw for tidy storage. Nice idea. No messy marabou moments in the fly box.
