"Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary." - Patrick F. McManus

I started to save money, on the flies I use, when I quit buying exotic materials, and quit trying the latest/newest patterns that seem to be developed around a must have (and new) material. I think I could cut my stash to 4-5 body materials and 3-4 skins and never miss the other bushel of "stuff". Fish in the Ozarks aren't well educated about such things.
Anyhow, welcome aboard; and where do you fish?
