  11. i simply look at an almost empty bag of materials or an almost empty spool of thread to let me know what i need to order. i know when i get low on hooks its time to order. its a visual kind of thing an app wont let me do that i have over 40+years of tying materials that would have to be inventoried, cataloged, tagged or whatever. too late in my tying career to do that. i'll be dead before i get to the last box 😀 if i inventory a full bag of hares ear dubbing or a brand new hackle saddle or cape, does your app know how many flies it would tie? i'm not about to catalog a pinch of this and a pinch of that for every fly i tie i tried creating a fly fishing journal once and made a couple of entries. after that i forgot about the journal. waste of time good luck on your app but it doesnt seem it would work for me
