    Default any experience with j:son sweden flies?

    So they look really cool but the downside is that it's stupid expensive to get all the patterns. But was wondering if anyone has tried them?

    I've tried them, well made and effective but expensive compared to others

    Nice flies. For that price they should be guaranteed to catch fish.

    my thoughts exactly. I cant decide if I want to order a few flies or actually buy some of the patterns and make them myself

    This is my common practice. I consider them "example" or "type" flies.

    I do the same when I travel and fish- I buy samples of the local ties, especially hoppers and stonefly nymphs to see what the locals are fishing...sizes, colors, styles.

    @ $4+ per fly they can stay in sweden along side the saab
    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    The Feathered Hook carries them and I have used the on Penns Creek. They are effective, but so are my presentations and drifts . Anyhow, only gripe I have is the burnt wings don't exactly hold up after catching multiple fish.

    These look more decorative than practical for fishing IMO.

    Impressionistic patterns that stand the test of time have always been more effective for me personally.
