A gift for a fly fisherman Dad that doesn’t have to end after Father’s Day. Once a month a package from Postfly will be delivered to the mailbox with essential flies or fly tying kit to get him ready to go out and spend time fishing. Postfly started their business in 2013 by putting together fly fishing kits of high quality to make it convenient and to help their customers be successful fishermen out on the water.
The Postfly has a variety of flies to fit your needs for Trout, Bass, Saltwater, and Steelhead. Subscription offers are available from 1 month, 3-months, 6-months, or 1 year. After selecting the choices given, once a month you will receive in the mail a box of approximately six to twelve flies to use during the season. Their most popular is the Trout Flybox.
Instead of getting a set of flies once a month, Bill decided to go with the fresh water fly tying kit. He wanted to improve his fly tying skills and the box set will have all the supplies needed without having to go out and buy it in bulk. Here are some of the latest packages of supplies that Bill received.
It takes Bill about 10-15 minutes to tie a fly. He could probably do it faster, but he enjoys the quiet time and seeing the pieces of feather, fur, and fibers come together around the hook and emerge as a fly.
In addition to flies, a storage box to keep them organized and protected will be a great gift. This classic Richard Wheatley fly box was a gift I gave Bill 23 years ago. The box design hasn’t change since it was introduced in 1910. Wheatley Signature Fly Boxes are available at Ashland Fly Shop and Amazon.
The aluminum fly box is 6 inches by 3½ inches with compartments and clips to store dry flies.
The compartments are spring loaded for easy opening.
