It started out as a question of "How do I do this?" and turned into an easy to use guide for anyone to follow. These wooden boxes are not just for fly fishing flies but any purpose where a small wooden box is needed. Have fun and enjoy the guide.

(Note: A full PDF file of the most current version of this book is available for free via email. Instructions are on the 1st page of how to get it. )


Make sure you print the templates at a 1:1 ratio or the fly boxes will be the incorrect size.

Use page 4.0 as the registration page. Print the page then measure these areas:

1. The black cut out area should be exactly 2-3/4" x 4-1/8".

2. The space between the four screw holes in the corners should measure 6-1/2" x 9".

Normally, your computer will print them to fit on an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of paper but will add a 1/8" border around the edges. They need to be printed at a 1:1 ratio!

Step 1:

<p>I'm having the same problem with printing</p>
<p>If you look on the last page uploaded, the red one, you will find my email address. Send me an email requesting a PDF copy of the book and you will get details on how to print them for a 1:1 ratio. They don't like you to list email addresses here because of scam robots searching for victims. Perhaps the won't find it if I list it like this: My email is: gdis46(at)gmail(dot)com. OK?</p>
<p>Thanks so much. My next days off I will be trying to source wood (hard to find anything but spruce in my area) hopefully pics to soon follow!</p>
<p>I printed this out but it is 3 pages to a sheet, how do I print each page individually. And get the templates the correct size?</p>
<p>I emailed you a the latest copy.</p><p>The instructions for printing the plans at a 1:1 ratio are in the email.</p><p>Please let me know if you did not receive my email.</p>
<p>This looks good Gary. I have made several boxes to Tony Lydgate's design and would now like to try yours using some of our Australian timbers. Hopefully I will be able to send you some photos soon.</p>
<p>If you email me a request, I will send you the latest PDF version of the book. Also, could you send me something about the Tony Lydgate design? I would like to compare the two versions and hopefully improve upon my design. My email is: gdis46(at)gmail(dot)com.</p>
<p>This looks great! Thanks for sharing and welcome to the community! </p>
