Bass & panfish boxes will be taken care of over the Christmas Holiday work shutdown.
Since I have a 4 days off from designing submarines, I thought I would take out a few fly boxes and inspect them for rusted flies, flies coming apart from trout teeth etc and just do some basic resorting of the dry boxes.
So after seeing how the fly tied above is really not going to be that durable against little trout teeth, I tied up the following fly and added a rib of fine mono thread to at least provide some durability to the back shell in the body area.
Always have a look in your local big box craft shop, home center, department store or dollar store. You can find some interesting fly tying materials that you wont usually find in a fly shop. Feathers, foam, beads, wire, organza, ribbons, tinsels, paints, markers, storage boxes, threads, metallic threads, yarns etc.
But by all means, support your local fly shop if you have one nearby.
