FB08 - Hardy Bros.

First appearing in their 1934 Hardy's Angler's Guide is the Hardy Neroda fly box. This Bakelite (the first synthetic plastic) box was an improvement over the previously made Japanned tin fly boxes. Box measures 6 1/8 x 4 x 1 1/4 inches. The Neroda box continued to be in the Hardy catalogues until the late 1960's. This particular box has the dark "tortoiseshell" finish on the exterior. The interior has steel plates with 20 "holdtite" finger clips per side. This box contains more than 50 flies. Very good condition with some minor scuffing on the surface. The seller's grandfather fished in Scotland using this box and flies.
