I put my share of profit into the Starbuck's coffee chain, no doubt about that. It ain't cheap, but neither is fly gear. Although I am not encouraging excessive measures, a few extra wooden stirrers per visits gives me a great supply of expoxy paddles for saltwater flies using epoxy or softex, etc. They are slender, yet resemble a popsicle stick for great application usage. I break them in half so I get two dry halves, and seldom use more than four per serious tying session. Damn good cup of joe too.
