Re: Purchasing saltwater flies
I, unfortunately, am still buying my flies as well, since I don't have the time to tie my own, and most of my materials have been eaten by bugs over the last 20 years.
I would call the store suggested by Mosca with your list and a question as to what else they would suggest for down there.
I would also call Sandy Moret's store with the same information. His flies will be much more expensive, I am sure. I am also sure that you will get very good flies, as that is where I buy mine.
I would suggest that you find out the water depth and bottom you will be fishing over primarily. Sandy carries the same flies with both bead and lead eyes, and in a variety of shades of color - depending on the bottom you are fishing.
I have never fished there, so can offer no advice on what to get other than it is nice to have the same pattern in two shades, two sizes, and two sink rates if you don't know what to expect. But it could well be that the fish there are not nearly so picky as the ones here.
