    They're so simple to tie that you might actually have trouble finding some.
    I know Bear's Den sells them, I'm sure other places do too.
    Flies that are simple like that don't sell well in fly shops. The don't look fancy enough to catch the angler's eye

    But they work so well, I am surprised more shops don't carry them. Seems Jack's flies were more a specialty.

    I did the search of some key online stores for Gurglers, and I could not find any. I completely forgot about Bear's Den.

    This thread is a good reminder. I need to go tie some.

    Jack was Boston guy, Bear's Den is a Boston shop (sorta).

    Thank you for the link I didn't know about this store but it looks legit. I found some on Ebay as well.

    In my search looking for them I encountered countless sites and videos showing the recipe and the way to tie them. They look very easy to tie but I am not a fly tier nor want to be one since I heard it was very addicting.



    Thanks again.

    Miller's Fly Shop in Texas sells them. Miller's has a store on Ebay. Their flies are not of the quality of most folks who tie their own, but for the price not too bad. At least the flies I've purchased from them have not been too bad.

    I tie most of my own, but have purchased flies from several sources to add to my own for fishing trips, particularly when they were on sale.
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!

    My local Orvis shop always has them in stock. You might try Orvis's online site.

    Orvis has them, but they are 3/0 saltwater
