    A good quality fly is easily worth 1 to 2, specially if it lasts a few fish. It is a bargain for people who need flies quickly and don't have time to tie them or want some samples to copy.

    Alternatively, as an example, look at what cheap gets you: Kingfisher Butcher
    Yes that cheaper but I'm amazed those guys had the brass balls to put a photo of that online. (I wonder if we could apply the same logic to rods ) (Edit - Or this monstrosity Kingfisher Butcher Wet Fly - Dragonflies zoom in on the head, poor wings, thread showing at the tail - tail not in proportion and rib not uniform). It is worth paying a bit more for the only bit of equipment the fish should see (unless you are prone to falling in the river).

    @Lewism
    Do you think fish examine the wings, head and windings before taking the fly?
    A rough representation will work fine ��

    I think you guys have started posting in entirely the wrong thread!

    Sounds a bit political to me.

    Men and fish are alike, they both get into trouble when they open their mouths.

    It seems to me that there are quite a few a**holes who frequent this site. This thread wasn't for you to demonstrate how smart you are by denigrating this guy, it's to ask those who have some measure of sympathy (not you guys, obviously) to help him get back on his feet. I don't know this guy from Adam, never saw his posts before, but that doesn't matter. He's in a tough situation and could use help. So, help, sympathize, or please PLEASE! turn on your internal filters and just don't post examples of your self-righteousness to this thread.

    Yes good example!

    I sent various tackle months ago through his daughters request on Facebook the op is ancient though with the best intentions, if you read the posts before commenting you'd see he's got plenty of sympathy.
    From what I can see only Alex displayed any self righteousness.

    Eh? It's from 20th August: 7 days ago. Are you thinking of the earlier thread with the link to the crowdfunding appeal?

    I'm still wondering why this thread has turned to talking about the quality of shop-bought flies?

    Well, this is a different thing from the original crowdfunding appeal, is it not? And what does it have to do with the quality of shop-bought flies, FFS???
