Vintage Hardy Bros. Neroda Fishing Fly Box
A good Neroda fly box made from bakelite with a brown tortoiseshell finish manufactured by Hardy’s of Alnwick. The lid and bottom are embossed with ‘HARDY BROS. MAKERS, ENGLAND’ and holding a small selection of fully dressed trout flies which 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’.
There are images of this Neroda box with two others. Stock numbers 27890 & 27889.
