About Mike’s Fly Box

Mike Sandifer

We are a Boise, Idaho business located in Northwest School of Fly Fishing. Our customers are always asking us about what flies work for a particular river during a the current season. We created Mike’s Fly Box to offer a subscription service to answer both of those questions in an effortless way.  We ship out to our subscription customers once a month a box of flies specifically chosen for our local waters by Mike Sandifer, a local fly fishing expert to match the time of year and river conditions such as cfs flows, etc.

Mike Sandifer, our expert on fly fishing, owns Northwest School of Fly Fishing and Northwest Trout Shop. He has been fly fishing all over the West for 50 years.  He ties flys, builds fly rods and teaches fly fishing. He has been a teacher of fly fishing for over 20 years.

Mike, assisted by his wife Martha, is available for questions via email, phone or drop in visit at our shop.
