Thread: Do better tying materials make better flys ?

Threaded View

  1. #1

    Default Do better tying materials make better flys ?

    The only places I can get materials that I can look at when buying are the big stores (cabelas, BPS, Sportsmans Warehouse), while back I read a few post about tyers using better grades of materials to make flies with, not that Im good at tying (do well to tie my boots) but am curious.

    Where can the better materials be found (at a fair price)

    Do they actually make a better fly ?

    Is just the OCD in tyers that make us think we NEED better materials and the fish could care less ?

    Should I just walk away from this rabbit hole and leave well enuff alone ??

    Just ...curious.
