Surflon Micro Supreme Braided Stainless Steel Wire
American Fishing Wire's "Surflon Micro Supreme" Braided Wire is our top choice for knottable braided wire. This is a very thin, nylon coated tainless steel wire, which can be knotted using traditional fishing knots to attach the fly (we use the Non-Slip Mono Loop ("Lefty's Loop) or a clinch knot - when tying knots in wire like this one should use one or two fewer turns in the knot than one would use in monofilament). Color is the the natural silver color of the stainless steel. See below for wire diameter. All sizes are 5 meters of wire per pack. $15.95/spool.26# (.018 in (0.46 mm) diameter) Add to Cart

TyGer Leader Braided Wire
TyGer Leader is a fine, flexible nylon coated micro braided stainless steel wire that can be knotted or tied like monofilament - you can tie just about any knot that you use for mono in this material. Excellent for making wire leaders & tippet for toothy fish. Note - we consider the "Non-Slip Mono Loop (Lefty's Loop)" as one of the ideal knots to use when attaching the fly to this (and other brands of micro-braided wire) - a 2 turn clinch knot is also excellent if you do not wish to use a loop knot. We are carrying a range of sizes, including light and heavy tests for various applications. See below for wire diameter. All sizes 10 feet of wire per pack.TyGer Leader 15# Test (.014) $10.95 Temporarily out of stock

The Stripee line guard protects your fingers while retrieving line, and cleans and preserves your flyline in the process. Anglers fishing backcountry areas where there is suspended sediment in the water frequently end up with abrasions & sore fingers, and the Stripee will prevent this. Also, line burns from stripping a dry flyline across the fingers (or from a fish taking line) of your rod hand are eliminated. Great for bonefishing, tarpon fishing, backcountry and largemouth bass fishing, etc. We have used these extensively over the past three seasons, and now we won't leave the dock without them. Size large fits most folks, X-large for those with big paws. Machine washable stretch neoprene with finger pads. Click on the photo shown above for an alternate view, and here's a closeup photo of the Stripee. $8.95.Size Large Add to Cart

Saltwater Fly Boxes
Our Saltwater Fly Boxes are durable plastic boxes made to carry all of your treasured flies.

These "Grand Slam" boxes by C&F Design are an excellent choice for all sorts of flies. These are premium
quality durable boxes with a secure closure and waterproof gasket. Slit-foam design makes it very easy to add and remove flies,
and keeps patterns well-organized. C&F has designated some of these
as boxes for "Permit", "Bonefish", etc, based on the configuration of the foam slots - those boxes are ideal
for holding the types of patterns used for those fish. The "Large Fly" box is the same size box, but with slots better suited
for tarpon flies, striper flies, streamers, clousers, etc. The Large Fly box with the clear lid has foam on just one side - this
is best for very large streamer flies. The Large Fly Box in the blue color has foam on both the bottom and top sides.
The Permit box in the teal color is shown below... click the text links for the other boxes to see photos. Dimensions
of all of these boxes is the same... Length is approximately 7 3/4 inches (20 cm), Width is approximately 4 1/2 inches (12 cm),
and the thickness of the box fully closed is approx. 1 5/8 inches (4 cm).
Some really great new slim-profile boxes are these "Slit Foam Case" fly boxes by Meiho. Here at Saltwaterflies.com we are now using these style boxes almost exclusively to store our own streamer flies, tarpon flies, and larger flats flies. The recent "slit foam" designs are showing themselves to be a real improvement over more traditional foam-lined boxes where the flies are just stuck into the foam - these newer styles hold the flies more securely, and the foam doesn't wear out over time, because the angler is not constantly piercing it with the hook points. The slit-foam design also makes it much easier to arrange the flies as needed. These four very nice boxes come in a variety of sizes to cover lots of differing fly styles. The foam lining these boxes is about 3/8" or 1 cm thick, which will hold even larger flies securely. Non-rusting plastic hinges, with secure latches that are easy to operate. The approximate dimensions as given by the box maker are shown below. Please note that the two larger sizes are slightly thinner in dimension than the two Small size boxes. Our picks for these boxes: We are using the Large Shallow box to as a boat box, and as a fly locker to hold our stored flies at home. The Medium Shallow is also a great boat box, but will still fit into plenty of medium size fishing packs to carry along a day's worth of flies. The two smaller size boxes are great for bonefish flies, clousers, small and medium sized streamers, etc, and will fit easily into most packs as well as some fishing vest pockets like the long pockets often found at the waist on many traditional fishing vests. Pictured above is the "Medium Shallow" box easily holding a set of about three-and-a-half dozen clouser style flies. See the links below for more photos.
This is one of the best new fly box designs that we have seen in years. Two-sided box lined with slit foam makes the most of the space inside - Meiho calls this their "Rungun" case, but we'd probably call it the "Grab-n-go"! On a recent bonefishing trip, we took just this one box while wading away from the boat... this box will easily hold 72 standard size bonefish flies, possibly even more if you maximize use of the space. Outside dimensions of the box are approximately 7 1/8" x 4 1/8" x 1 1/2" (18.5 cm x 10.5 cm x 4 cm). This box is ideally suited for most bonefish flies, but will also hold small streamers - this is a hell of a good box for the river too. Stainless steel hinge pins and excellent latches round out this very well designed box. Additional photos shown below.

This open compartment box is quite useful for crab flies, and bonefish flies with weedguards that can be difficult to stick into foam lined boxes, but can also be used for any flies that will fit in the compartments. Outside dimensions of the box are approximately 5 3/4" x 3 1/2" x 7/8" (14.5 cm x 9 cm x 2.5 cm). Dimensions of the individual compartments are approximately 1 7/8" x 1 1/2". Great for all sorts of flies - this box is appropriate for most bonefish sized crabs & flies - please note that larger crabs for redfish & permit may not fit in this box. Inexpensive, durable all-plastic design. Photo shown below.
