Default Re: alternate fly tying materials

In "days of Yore" I had a couple of buddies that tied and we used to go in halves or thirds on materials to save bucks- worked well with boxes of 100 hooks or beads, a cape, a saddle, a GP crown, even a jungle cock cape, fur patches and bulk bags of plucked feathers...

If you can find others local to you that have the same sick habit as the rest of us, you can save some bucks and STILL get first rate materials.

And all these craft threads, flosses, yarns? You can buy a box for floss with flat cardboard 'spools' it them and just spool off enough for each of you, then pass along the rest to others. Same with craft beads...
