And I don’t care.
I will continue to collect all sorts of tying material, because I like tying flies of all types, shapes and sizes..

Now that's funny, I have only been tying for 4 or 5 years and my wife and friends think I have accumulated shitloads. I would love to see some of the guys stashes on this site.

Hi all!! As a relative newbie to traditional wet and flymph patterns and fishing them I'm a self proclaimed material junkie too!! I've really fallen in love the the history and tradition of this technique. The pictures are amazing to me to see. The question posed is so true. But that won't stop me from my mission to keep finding more and interesting tying materials!!! LOL!!! Thank you

PhilA - Thanks for the pics of Datus Proper's traveling fly tying kit. Amazing! I need to get his book out and read it again this winter. So many books, so little time.

I'm finding since I got hooked on soft hackles that I have been accumulating quite a bit of materials in the past 4 years. Not even close to what most of you have, but I'm putting money away in hopes of buying more stuff this spring at the Expo. Honestly though, I have only been using a couple of flies this year and I don't plan to change, cause they have been working so good for me. Still, I will continue to acquire more and more. It's an addiction!
