Re: About Buying Flies Online - By Steve Clark
folx, check out sierratradingpost.com. They sell Umpqua overstocks by the dozen for 40% off or better. Alot of them I would never use, but I found some that I think are too much trouble to tie for about $7/dozen. Ex's: sz18 tungsten flashback pt's, size 10 flashfire muddlers, and size 16 double wings.
I'm real picky on fly quality, and that's why I prefer Umpqua and few others. I also like that their fly designers get a piece of the pie. (though they're not getting any from me at those prices)
All that being said, I tie 95% of what i fish.
