Default Fly maintenance

Recently I posted about pretreating flies with floatant and received many helpful replies (thanks to all). That got me thinking about fly maintenace. I clean my lines, occasionally lube a reel, check the guides on my rods, but what about flies. I must have several hundred of them, and when you think about it that's quite an investment.

We're still waking up to negative temperatures here in Minnesota, so I've got time to clean them or whatever. Does anyone do fly maintenance and what do you do...or is this just overfunctioning?
We're all in the same boat. We all come 'ere and we don't know why. We all go in our turn and we don't know where. If you are a bit better off, be thankful. And if you don't get into trouble an' make a fool of yourself, well, be thankful for that,'cos you easily might.--J.B.Priestley
