Default Re: Buying Flies without breaking your wallet?

Is Blue Fly still up? I can't get their site to open for me.

I've been ordering a lot from streamflies lately with the exception of a few patterns that I get at the local shop. I lose a lot of nymphs on the bottom and Streamflies has been great for keeping me stocked. One thing I have noticed is sometimes the shipping is super fast. Other times it might take a week and a half or two.
I wish I could justify paying 4x as much but I am a beginner and I lose a lot of flies. Down the road hopefully that wont be the case.

I've also ordered from https://www.hillsdiscountflies.com/ and have been extremely happy with the quality of his flies and the quality of CS.

I recently ordered from The Fly Stop and was impressed.

Fly prices and shipping costs were reasonable. The flies arrived quickly and well packed, with small containers used to sort them into groups.

Most importantly, and unlike a McDonald's ad, the product actually looked like the photos; the flies were well tied and consistent.

I plan to order from them again and would recommend them.

^^x2 i thought i had already posted about my first order of flies, but must have been different thread
i bought about 110 flies on my first order from Theflystop.com
and i already started another order that has another 100 flies, but still adding a few and will place my 2nd order with this shop
all flies were exactly like show on the pictures.
all flies that i have been using so far are holding up really well.
its based out of San Diego, im in Los Angeles.
when i needed my first order i was was leaving for a trip on Friday.
placed my order on Thursday, emailed the guy, got a response right away that my order was out, and received it next day. from time of placement to when mail man walked through the door just under 24 hours
highly recommend it.
o and one thing that set flystop apart for me from other online shops.
is its very user friendly, web page lay out is very easy to navigate and all images are well done, so makes shopping very easy.
search option works really well too if you're not sure on complete name of the fly
o and orders over $50 ship FREE (at 50-65cents a fly thats about 80 flies)
