I was playing on Facebook the other day and came across PostFly Box (www.postflybox.com). As a subscriber to a similar service for spin fishing (I could almost hear the gasp with the mention of spin fishing), I thought I would give it a try. The first month is only $5 per “box” with varying prices depending on subscription length.
PostFly box offers three different kinds of fly boxes:
Trout with 12-18 different flies per box
Bass with 5-8 different flies per box
Saltwater with 5-8 different flies per box
I subscribed for both trout and bass. I thought for $10 ($5 each type of box) I could at least give it a try. When my first package arrived, I opened it up with excitement and starting tearing into each one since I had no idea what flies came with it. It was fun having no clue what to expect and having the opportunity to learn new flies.
I loved the bass box. It was full of practical flies that should put those smallies in the boat. The first package contained 7 flies while the second one had 6. They were well made and I feel confident that these flies will hold up against the many aggressive strikes and fights that we have come to love from the smallmouths (I don’t do a ton of largemouth fly fishing).
The trout box I’m undecided on. The flies were plentiful and well made. My only problem with the box is that the river I mainly trout fish in, the trout seem to like the smaller stuff. There were a good assortment of sizes in the box but I felt roughly 50% of the box would be used very little FOR ME. If the river(s) you frequent likes bigger flies than the Clinch, then I would have zero hesitation with this box.
If you are looking to stock up on your flies very easily and affordably, then I HIGHLY recommend this service. Try it for yourself at $5 and if you don’t like it, you can cancel easily on their website (www.postflybox.com). No pressure at all.
