    Youv'e got more than enough. Don't fall victim to the fly hysteria. Learn and fish with the basic ones and you will realize that most fly's are not needed. I rather have half a dozen different pattern in all sizes than five dozen in one size.

    Sounds like you're pretty well stocked.

    Let me know where you've been fishing. I need some new flies and I"m not too proud to climb a tree after a prime specimine.

    Let us know how you did. I'm going to be there the week of 3/23 and am getting very exicted about the prospects of seeing some hatches and catching some fish.

    I think i got the 7 most popular patterns in a variety of sizes. I've read on these posts that size is more popular than pattern. & no drag. I hope i did'nt over do it, but i hate it when you slaying them on a specific lure & then you catch a tree, then are have to go to something else cause it was the only one you had. That is usually my luck lol
    thanks for all the advise
