In the early days of flyfishing, the 1920's the fly wallet was the way featherwing, and bucktail streamers and wet flies were carried to the waters. Many of them were fleece lined and would hold the flat flies, and several had pockets that would carry leaders.
Fly wallets in recent times have been moved aside to more modern fly boxes of foam and plastic.
I have over the years have collected several of these wallets, and love to display streamers in them. I still use one of them to this day, a Cortland, leather and fleece style.
There are a few artists who today produce many beautiful fly wallets.
This is one of them,
