You brought up a good point Joni. Do you ever thin out your flybox & if you do , How often?? Everyone has those flies that were tied for a trip or special outing & just didn't work for whatever reason. After a few years of tying you end up with variations of many patterns so I guess those are the ones that for me end up in " The Jar". How many flies of each pattern do you keep in your flybox & in your vest.
