well it depends on where you get your stuff, the only thing I really think that needs to be quality is dry fly hackle, for me Whiting silver grade is my favorite this costs about $60 a neck but you can buy half necks
tools, you can get quite nice tool kits for around $40 with everything you need including a very basic vise
that is just a example there are better deals around
the best deal on hooks I can find is at http://www.captainhookswarehouse.com
for the rest of the materials you can find them dirt cheap at craft stores and other places if you look around, I really don't like most kits I see offered though if you want to spend about $160 here is one that I would certainly recomend http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...pod0011282.jsp
