Here's a question from a new tyer for all you veterans ..... I have been tying for about two years. I do just fine with saltwater stuff, and I can handle most of the easy freshwater stuff. Lately I have been really trying to build my skills up by tying a lot of flies (mostly steelhead stuff). I really want to push my skill set upward so that I can tie decent quality flies on a regular basis. I usually tie a series of 8 of a given type of fly. Since I am trying to work on my skills, I carefully look at the finished product, figure out what needs to work better and then tie it again and try to improve every time. Usually the last two look pretty good but the fist three or four are pretty crappy. I end up with a lot of flies that are only marginal in quality. They are fish-able (I guess). What do you do with all those "learning curve" flies? I guess I could fish them, but a) they are going to fill up my fly boxes pretty fast; and b) It's kind of a downer to tie on a fly that you know is crappy. I can't be the first guy to have generated a drawer full of crappy flies. What did you guys do when you were still learning and trying to get better? Any advice will be much appreciated.
