Hardy Neroda Fly Box.
A good Hardy Neroda fly fishing box with lidded compartments for dry trout fishing flies. The Neroda fly box has 14 compartments and five transparent sliding doors. 'Hardy Bros. Makers England' stamped on both sides.

Hardy say in one of their catalogues from the 1930's 'Hardy "Neroda" fly boxes and containers for eyed flies. Fly Boxes of Distinction. We wish to introduce to our Angling friends a long felt want in the form of a new and perfect fly boxx, something which entirely eclipses the japanned tin and aluminium boxes now used. These new boxes will not bend or warp and disturb the set of the clips so that they cannot hold the flies properly. They are not affected by exposure to damp and will not rust or corrode. They never become unsightly, mutilated and practically useless; they retain their original shape, highly polished finish, closing properly. and are always perfect fly containers and protectors. All these boxes are fitted with good spring fastener. The range of the Hardy 'NERODA' fly boxes is so extensive that an angler should have no difficulty in selecting something which will exactly meet his requirements'.
