I carry between 800 and 1000. I try to always be prepared. Even then, I don't always have what I want.

Re: On average how many flies do you carry in your fly boxes?

Like you guys I carry way too many flies & stuff that most trips I'll never use. I bought a chestpack & I dont use it because I can't fit everything I
think I'm going to need . One of these days I'm going to pick out 6 flies
& just go with them in a shirtpocket. I'm wondereing which of the 999 flies I won't bring.

I have just one really big box. If I ever wade fish again I will need a little red wagon to carry it. I probably have 15 boxes within that one big box.
