Default Re: What have you been tying today?

Fly Tying related question:

do you guys re-use beat up/torn flies?
yesterday i went fishing and used my brand new Rainbow Warriors i had tied earlier.
i lost one, and few got chewed by fish and snagging them on tree's/rocks, etc, you could tell they've been used ..even the bead was all beat up.
anyways, i removed all the messed up materials off of them and retied RW's again on same hooks using beads that were already on there.
the only thing i thought i noticed different is that the hooks felt just a tiny bit softer? as i would wrap the thread they would bend just a slightly bit
or am i imagining things?
so do you guys re-use hooks?
