They have flies in a 2 pack of the same type that look ok, I wouldn't buy some big fly assortment from them. They useually have the 2 pack where the leaders and fly line are hanging.

My first trout on a fly was on one of the four flies packaged with my line and leader in the fibergalss Eagle Claw flyfishing starter kit I bought for $39.99. If I'm not mistaken, it was an olive wooly bugger, a fly that caught me many of my first 2-3 years worth of fish because I believed it would.

I have heard a rumor that this is not true of the Philadelphia market.

Those are further than 15 minutes from my house.

Most of the flys that come from Orvis, Cabelas,Bass Pro Shops, the independent fly shops all come from Sri Lanka, they look like they're all well made, ( they probably get 10 lashes if they scew one up) the ones that look like they were made from leftovers from a cheap fly tying kit are probably from China or Taiwan.

I don't think the Walmarts near me sell flies...interesting. shop around and you can find deals. Before I started tying I bought from blueflycafe.com. decent quality, and I definitely caught trout with them, both dries and nymphs. If you have the means, I suggest you learn to tie. Nothing more rewarding than catching a trout on a fly you tied yourself!

It depends... i probably have 1000+ easily in tying materials over the years and probably only tie a few dozen of anything decent... wait nm my flies look like crap... i end up buying online and at the shops when im out... unless you get out to fish a lot and have the time to invest in tying i'd stick with online for basics/nymphs and local for your more finicky patterns

Orvis is still doing the 10 for 10 deal aren't they? not bad...

before I started tying, I always bought my emergers from them. The LL Bean catalog didn't look too bad.

I must have the mecca of wal-marts here in Indiana Co.

Madison River tied flies, cheap, reliable fairplay tapered leaders for $1.96, Stocked up on 15, which will last me two years at least. Stay the f. away from fairplay tippet though.

I routinely use it, only problem is unwet knots slip.
