Green Caddis Outfitter Fly Box Review

Remember when fly boxes used to be expensive?  There was a time just a few years ago that a good fly box could run you $40 or more.  Those uber expensive fly boxes are still around but if you know where to look you can easily get several fly boxes from Green Caddis Outfitters for what you'd pay for one fly box elsewhere.  Sounds like a deal, eh?  They are and worth a look if you are looking for a few new fly boxes with spring fast approaching.

If you are not familiar with Green Caddis Outfitters then you should know that it's a part of the Hatches Magazine empire and owner Will Mullis is constantly putting together  new offerings for the online store from DVD's, to fly tying hooks and tools, to books, and of course fly boxes.

I've been using a mix of Green Caddis Outfitters fly boxes for the past year or so and have been nothing but impressed.  These fly boxes have been stuffed full of flies of all sorts and have held up to banging around in gear bags and in the kayak.  I especially like that there are so many fly box styles and foam innards to chose from and the waterproof fly boxes live up to keeping flies dry on the inside too.

- Quality.  These fly boxes are built to last.
- Price.  All fly boxes are priced less than $20 each.
- Choices.  Dozens of fly boxes to chose from.

- I wish there were a couple larger fly boxes offered.  I am a boat box junkie for warmwater and saltwater flies.

I ordered two of the fly boxes along with some hooks back in Oct of 2015 and am still awaiting delivery. I have made several attempts to contact Green Caddis Outfitters and have received no replies.

Samson...sorry to hear that. I can't get a response on my end either. Disappointing when a company falls off the map like this.

DO NOT ORDER THESE FLY BOXES. I ordered 4 fly boxes from Will. When they arrived, one of the lids was cracked. I immediately sent an email requesting an exchange. After at least 10 emails, on a monthly basis, I have not even receives a response. How could anyone run a business like that?

Ordered fly box 11-24-17, received immediate confirmation and green caddis was preparing to send my fly box. It's 12-3-17 and hasn't shipped. Emailed Will 3 times and not one reply. I get it if they're running out but they could at least respond. Good thing we're not talking much money. Still receiving ads from green caddis. Buyer beware.
