hey everyone,
i am relatively new to fly fishing, been at it for a couple years. i started tying my own flies this year, and have had marginal success. i found this sight http://www.fishingflybox.com/ they have a good selection of flys, and great prices. have any of you used their flies, and if so are they good quality?

I purchased a lot of flies from the fishing fly box last year and they were good. You should be happy. I would recommend them and will use them again. For .39 cents a fly how can you go wrong.

I would suggest buying from a local shop or tyer. You can see what you are buying,can get local recommendations,and support local economy , ( business) will be open when you need advice and other items. Most shops are really hurting and on line sales are killing them.

Big Y flies - http://www.bigyflyco.com/


Just got an order in from these guys - first time buying with them. I'm very pleased with the quality of em. Most of the flies were between 55 and 65 cents.

i would love to keep my business local, but the closest fly shop to me is about 50 miles, and the selection is very slim. on top of that each and every fly that is offered is over 1.00$, with most at or above 1.50$ thats to much for me to spend when i lose them all over.

Fly Cast- I can understand the long drive as a problem. Local shops have dropped of to about 1/3 the numbers years ago according to a article I read and my personal observations. If past buyers would have supported them perhaps there would be one closer to you. Paying $1.50 is a bargain for a good fly. People spend a lot of money on other relatedigear that fish do not care about. They care about your offering (fly) and then the next important thing is your tippet,this is what you do not want them to see or know exists. As for loosing many flys if you are a beginner perhaps a casting lesson or beginner course would help. I am not trying to be a smart a.. but just being honest.

Those cheap flies are tied with cheap hooks. With the money spent on a fly rod, line and leader why skimp on the most important piece of equipment; the hook. Support your local fly shop before they are gone. Their years of knowledge are much more valuable to you than cheap flies. Personally, 100% of my fly fishing equipment is purchased from local fly shops.

I have been fly fishing for a couple years off and on, I have a decent cast. But understand what you guys are saying. Has anyone been to oil creek outfitters? I believe that's the closest one to me. Are they worth the drive?
