My dear friend Ralph Moon, Curator Emeritus for the International Fly Fishing Center and 1999 recipient of the FFF Lapis Lazuli, sums Noel's Boxtm up with one of the finest compliments that we could receive " Greg, it is just about beyond description.".
We have since spent many sunsets searching for those perfect words in the rise forms of the fabled Henry's Fork.
That unique blend of design elements, solid wood, attention to detail, and singular craftsmanship that happens on rare occasions during ones lifetime.
Noel's half century old design, has delighted the true angler who is satisfied with nothing less than hooking a fish on their own fly.
Executed with the utmost care this work center is crafted with the fly angler in mind who is compelled to go beyond a merely functional tool.
The solid Aromatic Cedar drawers are designed with fly tying materials in mind; hooks, hackle, dubbing, wing materials.
Featured on the cover photo of such exclusive publications as Wild Steelhead & Salmon and Sporting Classics, as well as articles in Fly Tying, and Fly Fisherman-Japan Edition. Noel's Box regularly recieves rave comments from leading fly anglers at shows and conclaves.
