Default Re: What do you do with all the flies?

I did that last year. Was a good excuse to sit down a tie a few dozen. I give some away. I've given a couple of good friends boxes of about 40-50 steelhead flies in the best patterns for around here. You are also always improving; I went through my boxes and practiced some birth control by going after flies that I knew I could do a better job of now.

Bottom line is I also carry more of them because I have a bigger collection. The "trend" to go minimalist and just carry one box was not made popular by people who tie their own! I was looking at new vests last year and didn't like many of them because they could not hold the four boxes I always carry when trout fishing.
