You hit the nail on the head! LOL All the flies that are in the stores today are tied in China.
I'm not sure if Bob Clouser of Lefty still tie anymore. Those might be made in China also. But half the fun of fishing is tying the flies you fish with. Even if I tie a crappy fly, it is so much more fun to catch a fish with it rather than catching more with a expensive store bought fly.
YouTube and a thousand others on the net are great. This site also has wonderful pix and steps on tying........ I think Frank did them? When my new vise arrives next week, I'll be tying all the time.
