Vintage Hardy Neroda Fishing Fly Box
A good Neroda Wet or Dry fly box made from bakelite with a blood red tortoiseshell finish manufactured by Hardy's of Alnwick. The flies are hooked over the chenille covered bars and can not drop out or change position. Hardy's say about these boxes:- 'A severe shaking does not disturb them. Other important advantages are that the hackles are protected and the flies are always on view.
Neroda boxes will not bend or warp. They are not affected by exposure to damp and will not rust or corrode'.
The lid is embossed with 'HARDY BROS. MAKERS ENGLAND' and holding a small selection of fully dressed flies.
