I even get paranoid sometimes when I snap off in a tree and it gives someone else the chance of retreiving my flies. Some patterns I have no problem showing off but then I have my secret flies that I just hate to share. I don't even have a visible fly patch on my vest so that the flies I used lately can't be seen by others. If someone is a catch and release angler I sometimes will show a secret fly or two but if I know they are keeping the fish or have a tendency to keep fish I will definitely be stingy in the information I give or the flies I show. lol yeah I'm paranoid and a sob when it comes to protecting my fish and flies!

You weren't kidding!? I say this with the best of intentions-- I believe you are seriously overestimating the power of your secret flies. But, keep in mind, I have no idea what I am talking about 99.9% of the time.

Jack,
I agree with you that I overestimate the fish pursuation of my secret flies. But none the less, I don't want some pattern I came up with and have success with in every fly shop's fly bins, because the guy I show spreads it all over.

I have been getting better though. How many patterns have I shown on here in the last 6 months? Quite a few! This is more extreme than showing a close friend streamside. BTW, close friends don't see any either.

However, there are patterns I do show, simply because your average joe isn't willing to take the time to tie it or doesn't have the ability.

But I do carry a seperate small fly box for special patterns.

How secret can it be if I just told every one where I keep it.

Plus a lot of the patterns in my secret stash I have hinted to on this site (materials and techniques).

I've been getting better....

I'm not your average Joe, Mike.

The secret to secret flies is the confidence they give you.

To all you guys that don't share ................ Why be selfish? Life is about sharing and learning. To get, you have to give. It is all about Karma. You tell me about a fly and I may share my secret fly with you.. You might be looking for I job and I may know someone that has one available that pays well. Offer me a kind word in a bar when I am on the road, and I will probably buy you a beer. I mean these are lessons that we all learned in kindergarten. Keep perpetuating the myth that fly fishermen are …. You guys can fill in the rest.

If MKern comes to the Jam, Jack can hold him down and I will tickle him until he forks over that secret box.

I keep secret flies for the fact I stated earlier about ones who don't practice catch and release fishing. And yes my pattern is extremely deadly...I'd be willing to put my one secret fly up against your's any day lol. Now will it out fish your's every time? probably not but I'd be willing to test it out just it won't be on my water lol thats a secret too!
