Bins and Bins of Flies

Counting flies is a breeze.  The Trout Fly Mammoth Lakes, CA has approximately 1600 bins each with 20 to 100 loose fishing flies to be inventoried.  This totals about 65,000 individual pieces each worth from $.70 to $2.00. Sartorius GM312 counting flies

Estimating by sight is good to about +/- 20% or an error in inventory value of $13,000 and hand counting is horribly tedious and labor intensive.

With the balance we get errors more in the range of 1-2% due to variations in weights of flies.  The Sartorius GM312 balance will pay for itself in the first inventory.
