Default Re: Do we really need so many?

In my opinion, the short answer is no, but, that hasn't stopped me from putting together numerous fly boxes full of flies

I actually fish about a dozen different flies regulary, but, it is nice to tie up flies to match particular hatches, or when you know you are going someplace where there is a specific hatch going off.

I can catch fish with a few specific nymph patterns, but, when the blood midges or damsels are going off at the lake, I make sure to have some of those with me.

And like Fred, whether wading or float tubing, I always carry a good whistle.
