    Glad to hear good things about streamflies. I was planning on placing an order for about 50 flies.

    not being much of a tier anymore, ive found that Fly Fishing Flies, Dry Flies, Nymphs, Streamers - Blue Fly Cafe is a a good choice for good quality flies.

    I actually tie and sell flys. I have a VERY good reputation for my quality. I hate how places sell these sweatshop made flys for ridiculous prices to new and unsuspecting flyfishers. If you have facebook go to my page (link below) and "like" it, I just opened it up and am adding more flys daily. I can tie anything, not just whats pictured. I am new to this site but hope to meet and chat with everyone and have a great time. please check out my site. I am located in Alberta!

    After following this thread for a while I decided to give streamflies.com a shot. I've been tieing flies for some time now and I can honestly tell you that no matter where these flies were tied, they were tied well. I don't think I'll stop tieing but it's a great place for me to buy the flies I like to fish but hate to tie (especially wooven Stone flies). Thanks for the tip guys.
    The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.

    Thanks for the heads-up on StreamFlies. I'd never heard of them, they had some flies I'd been unable to find- #22 & #24 Bead Head Hare's Ear. The service was quick, the flies are very well tied, and the price was amazing.

    Dropped $40 at Big Y a few nights ago. Another $20 just now at Streamflies.com

    Maybe I should learn how to tie

    There are heaps of sellers which I see advertised from time to time as well as eBay where you can buy flies,the only reason I would buy them is if I didn't have,couldn't access the materials or if I really needed them in a hurry.

    I already have well over a 100 flies. Many I have not used yet. I have at least another 100 coming.

    I need to find a good cheap "master" box to store them in. Then I can pop what I want to use for the day into my Cabelas pocket size box.

    Gary, I can't tell if your reply was meant to encourage or scare Vapor half to death.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.
