Well, I can't pass on a post where the D is mentioned. I'll use / abuse the mass production nymphs from the places that sell the flies for $0.39-0.79 each. I'll assure you that the flies are cheap in price and in quality. They fall apart way to quickly and even without catching fish. It's a lot better than spending $2 to have the nymph hang up on the first cast and be lost.

When it comes to the mass production dries, I typically won't use them. As a general rule, the body is too thick to properly represent the insect you are trying to match. A #18 olive from the discount warehouse places has a body as thick as a #14 hendrickson from Dennis in Roscoe. I'm a firm believer that a majority of patterns use a body that is too large. Use the least amount of dubbing you can get away with and you will improve your catch rate on selective fish.
