I'm with Riderbos. I don't fish the flies I get in swaps but put them in a box to use as patterns for future tying. I gotta lot of work to do...

 

Good job guys....

I got my set on Saturday. I'm always torn up about whether or not to fish them. I have several from the last swap that I just could not bring myself to putting on the line. What if they got to close to a tree? I can live with losing a fly when a fish breaks it off. At least I got to feel that "tug" on the line. But when I lose it to a tree or get one stuck in the rocks, that just hurts.

 

Maybe I need a bigger piece of water. Where the trees are not quite so close.

 

Great stuff. Thanks to all. SmallieHunter, I'll be watching for the next one. Thanks again.
