Load it up and leave your fly boxes behind

Never before has it been easier to see and access your flies. Middle Fork Fly Patch™ holds a lot of flies securely in custom micro slit foam and keeps them protected from damage or loss by its patented exposed ribs. Wearing the fly patch on its zinger or a lanyard makes it exceptionally easy to use. This product is designed to be worn on vests, clothing or chest/sling packs. If you want to use them on lanyards or D-rings, an alternative attachment cable is provided.

Like all Smith Creek products, the Middle Fork Fly Patch™ is crafted from select materials. The body is made from a resilient, UV-resistant EVA and a rubber blend that’s custom formulated for superior hook retention and toughness. Exposed ribs are made from solid, high-impact plastics while the zinger has a rotating post attachment and extra long cable. The alternative attachment cable is corrosion resistant. If you want to use the patch on a lanyard or a D-ring, simply remove the zinger and use the attachment cable.

Lots!  With 21 slots per side, and a double sided design, you can preload Middle Fork Fly Patch™ with your favorite flies and leave the fly box behind.

Where should I attach my Middle Fork Fly Patch™?

Smith Creek's Middle Fork Fly Patch™ can be placed in a vest or pack pocket, or you can attach it using the provided stainless steel lanyard cable. The Middle Fork Fly Patch™ also comes with a Heavy-Duty zinger that extends up to 16.5" (42 cm).

How do I clean and maintain my Middle Fork Fly Patch™?

If your Middle Fork Fly Patch™ gets fouled with mud or dirt, simply rinse it under running water and blot dry with a clean cloth. You can also use a wooden toothpick to dislodge grit from the die cut holes; however, care should be taken not to gouge the EVA foam material.
