For the fly fisher, bug geek, and fly tyer looking to gain a deeper understanding of the hatch and which fly pattern to use, we offer our Invertebrate Sample Vials. Use the vials to preserve, catalog, or display the invertebrates you sample on the water.
This kit includes (6) 1/2 oz sample bottles with sealed caps, 12 sample ID cards, a waterproof Invertebrate Sample Key, and a pencil.
This is a must-have tool for every fly fisher, naturalist, and fly tyer looking to take their patterns to the next level!
Serious anglers need serious tools, not over-priced ones.
I don't fish any piece of moving water without a seine. But it's only half the story. Having great specimen bottles like these -- much better than you can buy via Amazon -- the incidence of cracking a breaking them goes way down (not drop on rock proof, but hold up in a vest pocket). By having these, you can put the bugs from your seine in them and hold them to the horizon to get a much more accurate identification of the nuances in color, which just don't exist with the bugs on the seine or in the palm of your hand. Game changer for any slow day on the water.
