I have 12 collectibles tied by the Dettes and their three autographs. I blew it with the Darbees, I thought they would live for ever. I fished their flies. My Grandfather gave me a couple of boxes of flies tied by an assortment of Catskill tiers. I can picture them cause I took some apart to see how they were tied and used the rest. I kick myself when I go to the Catskill Fly Museum.

Since last posting I had a chance to get a better idea of what was in my fly boxes. At present 290+ flies from fly swaps with another 125 on the way, 100 or so that are store bought, and about 30+ that I tied for myself. I lost 2 to the Lilly Pad Monsters last week I carry everything in 7 Fly Boxes, 2 Altoids Tins and a Flay Wallet. I have a larger tray at home that I just started to fill up.

Dang.........I haven't even tried to count. Way too many. A lot of my own designs, (I don't count the production fly tying), and many from swaps over the years.

in my personal fly boxes. And believe me...I tie a lot of flies with excessive imperfections.
