Discount Flies??
 
Has anyone purchased flies from The Angler's Dream, Blue Fly Cafe, or Big Y Fly Co?

I found these companies on the web, and the prices seem great. Will I be "getting what i pay for"????

Thoughts?

Blue Fly Cafe - Yes but not the other two. Blue fly is great -good flies, great price and fast delivery. The Fly Shack is another I use that I am very satisfied with.

I have placed several orders with both Blue Fly Cafe and Big Y Fly Co. Service has always been great, flies are certainly good for the price, and obviously the experience was consistently good enough that I went back and would go back to either.

I have ordered from the blue fly cafe and big y. It has been a long time since I have ordered from blue fly, but as I recall they had exceptional quality. I order from BIg y on a constant basis, and I am not sure I should, I have problems with things like prince nymphs breaking (not breaking on fish, just breaking by having mono tied to the hook bend), have bought yellow stimulators for stonefly dries and the "yellow" was a funky green, ordered fox pupae and the chenile was tied down with *thread* instead of wire.

Gotta give them their props, they are excellent marketter, that free shipping on $35 and %5 credit keeps pulling me back in even with my troubles. Elk hair caddis seem to be a safe bet

I can give a big thumbs up for Blue Fly Cafe. I placed my first order with them last week and it arrived at my door today, 6 days later. That's some kind of record for any item I've ordered from the U.S.

Flies seem to be very good quality and their prices are great.

I've ordered from the FlyShack and have been very satisfied! I'll have to try Angler's Dream. Used to get some from Angler's Vice until they went out of business.

I've ordered from Blue Fly Cafe. Their flies seem pretty good quality, though sometimes they're tied a little more "basic" than something you'd find at a local outfitter. For the price they're hard to beat, and they ship Priority Mail.
