The C & F Chest Patch Threader (CFA-50/THR) holds your flies securely in foam slits. Lots of fly boxes do that. What others don't do, though, is provide sufficient ventilation for the flies to dry properly. The C and F Chest Patch Threader has open ends, allowing flow-through ventilation. You can clip it to a D ring on your vest or use the pin on the back to attach it directly to your shirt or sling. The included Midge sized threader is a big help for any fly (other than those tied on Wide Eyed™ Hooks!).
The problem with midge flies is that they are so darn SMALL! Us fat fingered folks have a hard time getting one out of fly boxes that have the slit foam, and a very hard time getting just one out of fly boxes that have compartments. This box solves that problem. There is one large compartment and your flies are held in place by a powerful magnet. You can spread them out so that it is easy to pick up just one at a time. With the bright white background, you can even see the little buggers. The box measures 4 3/8" by 3 3/8" by 3/4" so it fits in your pocket easily. It will hold more midges than you need.
