Default Cabelas streamers?

I have never bought flies from Cabelas before so I don't know the quality. I have a fishing trip coming up in june, and I need to stock up on some streamers. I am only considering going through cabelas because I have gift cards there, and I am also buying some fly line through them. If anybody has any experience with the quality, I would greatly appreciate it. Or if anybody would like to trade an unused gift card for some hand tied flies, that would be awesome too. Any help would be great.

I bought the majority of my flies from Cabelas, the quality probably not the best but good enough. They cost less than my local BPS or Orvis and no sales tax. I usually bought a bunch when Cabelas is having $50 min Free Shipping.

usually the hooks on many "store bought" flies are cheap. should be ok for trout. not for steelhead/salmon. have seen them break on those big dudes.
