My first 10 years of flyfishing I never tied. Now I only fish with my own ties....however.....I used alot of vendors before I took the plunge and there are alot of decent ones. My favorite was Blue Fly Cafe priced out at about .65 fly.

I can't remember the last fly I purchased, but I've heard NOTHING but good reviews from my friends who have purchased from here.

I browsed the net looking for good cheap flys, this company kept popping up in various forums all with high marks. I myself was wanting cheap yet decent quality. Took the plunge and ordered 62 various flys to refill the dry fly box and top off the others. Hopefully they are as good as they are talked up too be.

I tie my own midges and nymphs, but for dry flies I've had good success with Tonto Creek Flies.

I recieved my order from "the fly stop" in 3 days. Its $3 1-3 business day shipping and their prices are good. Fly quality is IMHO just as good as what I can pay $1.50+ for at Cabelas.

i got my order in little after 11AM and emailed them to say thanks in advance if they can manage to get it out today, as im sure it'll get up to LA by Friday afternoon, that's when im taking of to Mammoth for weekend of fishing

Nope I am in south western Idaho. Not sure how fast the mail sorting facilities are in the bigger cities but I would think that you would have it by friday, or at least the day of friday.
