Darwinism seems to have become a politically protected sacred cow, and I've never seen a sacred cow I haven't wanted to roast - the fact that you are not supposed to criticize it is just too irresistible to me.

185 flies in my personal flybox.
174 flies in my selling box.
12 of my hand-tied jigs in my personal fly box.
76 of my jigs in my selling box.
All in all I have 447. But thats not counting store-bought flies.

I have been absent from this forum for about two years. I am very glad to be back!
If there are fish to be caught, then I am most likely out on the water!

Of course I don't carry that many when fishing, just a few of each pattern and all the extras are stored in Plano divider boxes in a soft sided tackle bag.

You won't save any money, but the joy and satisfaction of tying is very much worth it

Deep in the heart of every man is a longing to live as God designed.
Nowere is the freedom to do that more possible than in the wilderness and beauty of God'screations.

I don't keep a lot of my flies and so I must say that I have under 250 flies. I think I will start to concentrate on tying fishing flies for myself because I guide in the summer and it's always good to have an inventory of flies.
Anyhow, I enjoyed this thread.

So the question I have . . . What do you do with all those flies??? I don't know that I would ever fish 25,000 flies. Are they patterns you use? Pattern that you tied for fun and never use??
