Video killed the radio star...

Back in 1979 the Buggles had a hit with the title of this entry in the blog. The song was about a radio career cut short by television... "What has that got to do with fishing?" Well the DVD/digital age has now seen off the video! What can we do with all those video boxes? Well the picture gives the game away... throw away that useless tape and cut two pieces of ethafoam and place them inside the box...

And there you have it a rather neat fly box for pike flies.

Now that idea wasn't mine it was courtesy of Colin Brett on the Pike Anglers Club forum.

Now why didn't I think of that.Looks like our storeroom is going to get a visit from me in the morning.

I have found for streamers that placing foam in one side ensures that you dont crush the fly... synthetic fibres DO have a memory, more so than naturals like bucktail. In addition if you use translucent video cases per the photo you can actually see the colour of flies thru' the box IF there is only one sheet of foam.

Great fun... I need to sell the videos on ebay now!
