I get caught more than the fish do by tying the next great thing. I have tube flies, monster streamers, bait fish flies, ect ect ect.

The one good thing about this is that I do get to learn different ways and styles of tying. I may never use them but they were fun to tie.

I am 25% bear. I don't suspect that it's pubic hair, but I make no guarantees. It is most likely upper body hair, as I have plenty of it. The lint trap decides the dubbing mix, not me.

A couple of the materials that I "had to have" but rarely use are all the different shades of krystal flash, some of the expensive streamer materials, swiss straw, and rubber legs.

However, I think a lot of money can be wasted in getting specialized hooks. They are expensive and very limitting on what they can do.

I think this would constitute my golden pheasant cape, rubber legs, various hooks, several different yarns, and odd colored hackles, marabou, and dubbing. Over the last year or so, I've gotten into the "if it looks close, use it" mentality. It has lead to me being able to use up some of the fore-mentioned materials.

I think I have the problem of being too cheap at times. Let me explain.

I separate, like most of you, my materials into different boxes or drawers. My "junk" drawer of chinelle, para post, yarn, swiss straw, etc has the most stuff in it. It costs $2-4 a card so it's not hard to just pick it up at the shop and not worry about spending too much money. Looking back, right now I would rather have 2 or 3 nicer dry fly necks for the equivelant of what I spent on all that "stuff". I use a lot of it, but hindsight is 50-50.
