Re: What do you do with the old not used patterns?
i do about the same as you, but i try to make it a point to put one or two of those flies on my vest patch and use them when i hit the water. i have a tendency to use the same patterns over and over and i know that doesn't help my catch rate. my presentation of some patterns suffers as well. crayfish, woolies, and small streamers are some of the residents of this "off box"
