At least give them to a charity! Otherwise, what size was your ex? My wife needs waders
I've bought fly rods, reels, lines, hooks, and materials that I haven't used, but that doesn't make them useless. I just have more gear than I have time to fish.
Ever buy StreamLine neoprene waders? Late 80's or so. Customer service was excellent. They'd turn 'em right around or send me a new pair but I'd be wet again before taking them out of the box.
A Mac desktop computer.
I bit when the "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC" adverts were running.
What a disappointment!
I got an 87 pack of these from my local fly tier...... was like dude... wtf? Probably a carp fisherman. Most useless kit ever!
Those make the best live mullet rigs when fishing for inshore redfish in the gulf. What a treasure!
My ex's engagement ring.
I never had any trouble with Neoprene's leaking. Just the breatheables type.

A Lamiglass "esprit" steelhead rod. Not only were the guides misaligned with the spline, the tip section was aligned 90° to the butt. Lamiglas would not warranty it and I could't bring myself to sell it so it's been in the back of my closet for 25 years.
StreamLine brand neo's. You must not have owned a pair.... or 3.
Red Ball, 3mm. Best ones I ever had.
I thought this thread was about the most useless piece of equipment....?
One always have to add a little more to make it interesting. Besides that is an old thread. Somebody resurrected it. It's fair game.
About 95% of the flies I buy-I like em but the fish don't
Clearly, and without a doubt, the most useless piece of fly fishing gear in my garage is the guy who owns the garage.
Fishing fanny packs;
Devices to help me tie flies;
Badly designed fly reels; and
other things too numerous to mention.
Teeny nymphs. The ones I tried must have been soaked in fish repellant.
