ZPacks Toothbrush Case as 9g Mini Tenkara Fly Box
So when you're out on the trail, you don't want to carry a million tenkara flies and at the VERY minimum don't want to be carrying a bulkier 17g (Zimmerbuilt fly box weight - Lightest Found) fly box. So I started thinking...Mini Altoids Tin (14.2g)...nah. OH WAIT! I have a mini flip top box that would be perfect! My old ZPacks toothbrush case...9g...WIN!KJ
Ok, I don't fly fish, so I have no idea what is needed, but I want to see a photo of it packed up. I have a zpacks kit and there's not much room!
re-use an ordinary matchbox, sans matches. stores more size 10-12 kebaris than you'll need.
Ooh! That's a good one too Craig!

Bicycle puncture repair containers are great for bits and pieces, they come in all shapes and sizes, the clear ones are the best because you can see what's inside.

Trace, what kind of line is that red line you have in there, and where did you get it?
Or just roll it into a sandwhich bag?
