Per the earlier post re resurrected flies from an old, plastic tub, I found some five dozen or so serviceable flies out of many hundreds of not so serviceable flies. Some of these flies have been nibbled upon by moths. Some have been in that tub for years. I estimate the tub was started some twenty years ago judging by the flies I recognize from many years ago at the bottom. I feel it was worth the  hour or so of time and poked fingers to rescue those perfectly serviceable creations. Other lesson learned: wow, I use to tie crappy flies. Quiet now! I don’t require a current critique… 🙂
