Buying Trout Flies
When buying flies select only the best grades. They cost from $1.00 to $1.50 a dozen for the best grade flies of the best fly-tiers; and the flies of this sort will outwear the cheaper ones a dozen times. By all means steer clear of the cheap trout fly. They are commercially tied by the million by people who do not in the least know what they are to be used for. In consequence they disintegrate with facility and, as long as they hold together, are mere useless bunches of feathers — not at all resembling either in color or form the flies tied by men who have “been there." A fly of good grade will sometimes last for weeks of pretty steady fishing, and have a good many trout to its credit, without being put out of commission. The cheap fly is a snare and a delusion to the angler only.
