Default Recycled Hooks

It's amazing how many beat up flies I have acquired over the years. I usually place them into empty salsa cups.

I decided to strip off the old materials off of bugger hooks. After all was said and done, I was able to retie 26 Woolly Buggers in different sizes, colors, some with beadheads, some without. All the hooks were still sharp.

One day, I will sort all the hooks by type: dry, nymph, steelhead, streamer. That will be a task. There are well over 100 flies in the cups.

Some of the hooks showed some rust. A touch up of steel wool cured that.
