You will get $1 each for some of those flies. No problem. I see some nice hares ear and light cahills,caddis, some green weenies,etc. Yep good flies. But, after some guys go thru cherry picking out all of the good flies and popular flies, you'll be hanging on to flies that can't be moved. I'd say you'll get into the $40 dollar range until you find out no one wants what's left or has no idea what the flies are good for. Get a price for all and sell all at one time. As for fleabay, yea I can buy new flies for about $3.50 per dozen. That sale from there will give me the size that I'm looking for and the type of fly that is needed.
This kind of sale is for a conglomerate of what's in a box and how old are they. Ever smell an old fly box? Smells like moth balls. There is a reason. Moths will destroy old feathers and wrappings. Another thing to think about is any rust on the hooks itself. If they were wet and not cared for, the hook will be rusty and snap at the slightest pressure or bend.
Hope I didn't cause you any ill feelings but I've been around the block a few times and that my friend is what the down side is to buying or selling old flies.
No ill feelings at all. Thank you Very much for your input--!!!
On a side note-- are spin fishermen welcome for your trout outting?
Maybe you could persuade me into the "Dark side"

As Great as donating sounds, I'll probably just keep using them to catch bluegills for Bait
