Can't see everything super clearly, but on initial look sounds a bit steep to me... you'd still have to buy stuff and the vise is 'serviceable' but you'd likely want to replace it soon after getting it.

If those spools of thread are new, they might be worth around $40 or so, but they may be used. I can't see what's behind the thread. Otherwise much of it looks like a collection of fairly inexpensive items with some more pricey items mixed in, added together they could be over 100? Might also be used. The Production Fly Tying is a good book, though I just checked it out of my library and read it. Hard to know.

The dub , thead wire is all 2-3 bucks a pop so as stated if full you thats good.

Those Dai Riki hooks are $5.95 per 50 pack so if they are full you have some value there. However if those hooks are all dry hooks and you tie nymphs then obviously it might not be worth it. If they are hooks you would use and they are full (full'ish) then $100 is a decent price for the whole lot.

Best steal is that Whiting Hackle, those can be upwards of $80

The value of the pictured stuff is well over $100 but the real question is are the materials and hooks going to be useful to you with what you plan to tye. Also the vise while will work is low end and you will want to up grade very quickly. If it was me I would pass on this deal

If you don't as yet tie, then IMO you could do much worse than to pay $100 for what is there.

As has been said, IF the thread spools & hooks are close to being full, then it's not a bad deal at that price.

That Whiting hackle does not appear to be dry fly hackle. Looks like one of their American grade saddles, which is good for buggers & such, and still something you could tie many flies with. Still, it's at least worth $20 new.

You could easily spend $75 or more on a "kit", which would not have as much usable materials, so this would be a good way to get started. You could very easily tie $100 retail worth of flies from what appears to be there.

Even though I as well as others thought The Price was a Bit Rich,as you said it sold.
I've found out by buying Tying Kits,you end up with stuff you never use,in the long run it's better to put your put Kit together of what your needs are. As suggested you can shop around & buy when you see it for a suitable price.
I know as I don't know how many times I've discarded gear which has never been used.
