Default Re: Do we really need so many?

Hi Mike,

I'm gonna be frank and say that tying all those flies and doing so many other unnecessary things is what makes fly fishing both interesting and challenging.

I could very easily dangle a nymph under a bobber and if I used 4 pound line could cast the rig pretty far as well.

I generally stick to a few very well proven flies when I go fishing but I have 6 boxes in the tackle bag back in the boat and the inside of the box I carried today looked like this......
