Thanks for the comments! As I said, I didn't tie all of what's here, and this is not all of my "collection", just the one's I have taken pictures of.

I like variety!

You definately have a "selection", a nice one indeed. Can you park the car inside the garage or has it been converted to a "fly storage facility" ??

My garage is behind & separate from the house. Don't keep any fishing related items in there. Except the boats sometimes.

My basement, part of it looks like a tackle shop, because I don't just fly fish, the rest of it looks like a fly shop!

I'm down to just one swing-leaf box for summer salmon wet flies:

Of course, as many of you know and have seen, I keep a couple boxes in reserve:

NO !!!!!!!!!!!!
Then you will have a million little containers running around. I started tying flies to simply things and get solid on a dozen go to patterns.

Yeah that theory went out the window, 4 fly boxes, 16 plastic tins from fly shops later I have 100's of flies I tied laying around.

Just kidding tying is awesome but I spend 50% of my time and resources tying flies I dont need.



This is one of many stashes, I even have one of those AM/PM 7 day pill boxes I am starting to fill up 2 doz per spot.
