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!
