Where do you find your flys?

A bunch of us were hired at Boeing to bail out their welders on the triple 7 jig project. 1 young kid I worked with asked bout the bugs on my cap.I pointed out I was a fly fisherman. He asked me where and when and a bunch of other stuff , I enjoyed the talks at lunch til he asked where I got my flys, "on the window sills of your house?"

In storage drawers (which periodically multiply) in labelled boxes (tailored to either specific species, favorite waters, or both.). Of late, most of my "new"/"potential patterns" come from this site - thanks, folks!

I know how quickly a vacuum deals a fatal blow to leaders and fly line.
Sometimes I fill out a box going through the grocery sack full of unused boxes in the tying room closet. At least half have some left over flies.
