...... which flies you use the most? Check the empty slots in your fly boxes.
I looked at my C&F Nymph box yesterday, and started smiling. My row of #20 BH Flashback PT Nymphs, which started out this year at 25, was almost gone.
My next row was my #18 BH Flashback PT Nymphs was over half gone.
My next row of #16 BH Flashback P T Nymphs was give/take one quarter gone, and my next row of the same Nymphs in #14’s. Was almost untouched.
Other than huge #8. Stonefly Nymphs ( Which I use mostly for weight to get the PT’s down) most of the myriad and various other Nymphs in the box were untouched.
The same goes for my dry fly Dewitt box. My LaFontaine Emergent Sparkle Caddis dries are about empty, as is the compartment of #18 Caddis dries. I could ( probably) get rid of 90+% of the three thousand flies I carry at all times, and just go with the tried & true. I probably won’t, but I could.
Im done trout fishing until late September so I’ll have plenty of time to get those #20 PT’s re-stocked.
PS. No idea why I can’t stay logged in, and this new site is as slow as cold molasses in January, even with a fast Net connection. Also......frequently the header comes up as golledlygook. No idea why, but this is a bit of a PITA, fwiw.
