    Wild Trout and Grayling fishing 2021.

    No reason why I can't fish - except for the freezing temperatures - It would have to be around 8-9 degrees before I venture out - I would not be able to survive minus temps! Douglas

    Good question - I've never had a fly box with silicon in it, so can't help, but like you I would be interested to know. Just a wee bump - hope it helps to get some responses. Douglas
