Default Bluefly Cafe

Hello, Everyone
I just wanted to share how impressed I am with Bluefly Cafe. I posted a couple requests for different flies on here, I took many peoples advice and order several different flies from two places. I ordered a package set of 20 flies from Orvis, two days later I ordered a random assortment of flies from Bluefly. Bluefly shipped the same day (Friday), and arrived within 3 days (Today). Orvis says theirs will ship by this Thursday, I got free shipping from both so I'm not going to complain about Orvis. I don't have a fly shop close to me (hour-hour and a half drive), so I think I know where I will be doing my fly shopping from now on. I told this story to my fiance and she didnt care one bit, so I thought I'd tell it on her.
Thanks Cabot

I bought a collection of clousers, muddler minnows, zonkers, wolly buggers, and a couple different nymphs (pheasant tails, etc). I am upping my arsenal.

Great choices-- they're all great bass patterns, and the muddlers and zonkers are great streamers for trout too. And the nymphs are great for trout and panfish. Good luck with them.

I just received some flies from Discount Flies and I was very impressed with the quality. I have some on order from Orvis as well and they are good quality as well. They happen to be on sale with free freight.

I work just up the road from their store in Boise. I've had nothing but great luck with their flies.

The flies I ordered from Orvis finally arrived today. They look very good, but I think I'm sold on Bluefly. The question is, when will I have time to give them a good test run.
Thanks, Cabot

I use blue fly a lot (in fact all my flies are from there). They had a problem with a hook shortage but I talked to them 2 weeks ago and they are now getting things caught up. If you need a specific fly and the website says they are out of them call them on the phone and they will work with you.
