Spring Cleaning #2
It is amazing over the years how many flies get trashed and though I repair, cut and replace them as time goes by, there always seems to be a pile of them I got to deal with. So finally I tackled that stack of flies. Trying to salvage hooks, cones, dumbells, etc, I managed to save not only a few flies, but lots of hooks, and even some tying materials. It's such a pain in the ass, but worth it if you like to recycle everything like me.
Wire-cutters, box-cutter, a few razor blades and sore fingers later, I got a supply of tying materials. I also believe in the mojo associated with using materials and hooks that have been fished over the years.
