Number of flies
Posted 13 October 2004 - 11:27 AM
I generally carry 5 boxes, 2 with nymphs/ wets, 1 with just weighted flys nymphs/boogers, 1 with Streamers, and 1 with Drys. Problem comes trying to remember which pocket which box is in, before I end up taking them all out.

I often spend more time looking for a fly than I do fishing.

If i'm in a boat I'll have more but it also depends on the species. I can only have 10 or 12 Tarpon flies in my stretcher case so that's how many I bring. For Snook and redfish from a boat I might have 2 dozen MOL.
For trout, 3 or 4 small fly boxes with 100 flies total.

I find that I rarely change flies when fishing in saltwater or warmwater, it's those blasted trout that keep me guessing!!!

It's not that I carry that many patterns, I just have several of each pattern. Plus, when I'm trout fishing I often try to imitate the specific stage of an insect. When your are trying to imiatate the nymph, emerger, dun or larva, pupa, and adult of some species, it doesn't take many for the flies to add up.
