Vintage Small 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 is 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’.
