Now some might say that makes me a sloppy angler. I say you can be a type-A neatnik if you want. But once the fishing season starts in earnest, I have better things to do than play with little flies in boxes... namely catching fish. I've taken clients out on guide trips, and watched them try to hide the horror in their faces as I pull out my ratty, disorganized fly box in the morning, thumbing through loose globs of fur and feathers to find the right bug. A great guide is supposed to have a well-organized arsenal of boxes, so many that he needs an extra backpack to carry them all, right?
