When I venture out to saltwater, whether it be on a beach, estuary, or on the deck of a boat, and regardless of the species I'm after, I typically have anywhere from 30-50 flies with me. This past off-season I really started tying some nice patterns, and looking at all that stuff leads me to the conclusion that I'm either going to have to carry more boxes or be much more selective with what I bring.

On average, approximately how many flies do you take with you out on the water when fishing the salt?

I have this jones ya`know, I can`t stop it, I have to tie. It`s no secret that I tie way to many flies, I couldn`t possibly use all of them. But I can`t bear to be without them. On any trip, even if only local I have upwards of 1000 flies on me. I have a serious problem.
