I have had mice, moths, water, mildew, and hide rot ruin materials I left unattended or inadequately stored. I believe, aside from some obnoxious anal types, that many of us are careless in replacing materials we have used and allowing others to be ravaged. With today’s plastic containers, there is no good reason a fly tier cannot have a moving truck load of materials safely stowed in the garage, the out buildings, the basement, the living room…well you understand.”  Here is an older piece that will provide some safe guards for more serious possession and storage of perishable materials. It is enough to make you exercise better care of your materials.
