Re: Do you buy or tie?
I buy 100% Bucking the trend of responses.
I lose a lot of fly's especially since I started tandem and Czech nymphing.
However, when I buy I will purchase in bulk. Last online order 3 of us bought 90 dozen fly's for an average of 48 cents a fly. This year I bout 37 dozen on ebay for 31 cents a fly. They were all midges and nymphs.
I do have to admit. I am getting closer to wanting to tie my own because I can't get my favorite fly with a Tung head or lead wrap base.
