So when do you have enough flies ?
I have been trying to tie up a plenty of olives for the start of the season. Usually at this time you find the trout are not that picky and are willing to take fairly big olives. This is quite good if you are a clumsy fly tier and can only tie up large flies.
I like to use yellow thread as most of the olives around this way seem to have a yellow sheen to them.My fly box is filling up fast. I have a good selection of CDC and Elks, Klinhammers, lots of dry olives and a few nymphs.
I will keep this box for newly tied flies and then transfer them over to a more portable box for streamside use. I am thinking of taking advantage of the exchange rate in New York and pick myself up a bargain.
