    Mike,

    You sure you didn't leave off a zero or two Seriously, I don't want to think about how much I have spent on fly tying materials but it's probably more then all my other equipment combined What about capes etc ? With bird flu and all the shops battling to get in feathers I am very happy that I bought mine some time ago.

    Regards,
    Darryl

    Thanks Darryl, I just thought about it,

    4 X Good Capes, 1 white, 1 red, 1 grizzly dry and 1 grizzly soft hackle = R1200
    Whole bunch of Cheap Indian cape’s I picked up at like R10 a pop = R200
    Threads, lead and ribbing probably 30 = R600

    I’ll stop there, but my estimate has gone up to R3500, as I have been quite religious in not buying stuff that I know I am not going to use,

    Thanks Darryl, as has been said, My greatest fears, is that I die, and my wife, sells my kit, for the price, I told her I paid for it…

    Hi Troutgirl. Don't listen to a word they say about wooly buggers and things. They are only trying to currupt you and win you over to their dubious nymphing practices! I would say, go and buy a selection of nice dry flies, something like a Royal Wulff in sizes from 12 to 16, and become a dry fly girl!

    It sure sounds a lot classier don't you think?
