Colliedog I think I have the same box in my collection of C&F boxes but the swing leaf seems to be glued in.Dont know if it helps, but the box I keep big mayfly and daddy patterns is a deep C&F waterproof box with slits, that started life with a central swing leaf which I removed (it pulled out so could be fitted back in the future). Plenty room for two sides of flies without crushing. I can post a photo later if it helps.
Yes you are right, it is held in by what looks like a strip of adhesive tape. I just worked the blade of a craft knife in to loosen it.Colliedog I think I have the same box in my collection of C&F boxes but the swing leaf seems to be glued in.

Have you considered this?I'm after a slotted single sided fly box and ideally silicone lined for large bushy Mayflies so needs to be deeeep.
Anyone know if such a thing exists?
I have one very similar for midges not sure they are available in mayfly size but a great call
just found this online, looks like it has magnetic bases in the compartments, presume this helps with not blowing all the flies away when you open it- not sure how big youd need for your mayflys though...
Im not sure how delicate hackles would hold up in there, they call it the sushi roll but I think someone in Fishpond product development likes to roll up a fat oneHave you considered this?
