    I've been flyfishing for 30 years and there's no better feeling than to catch a fatty-boom-batty brown on a fly that you tied.

      Alot of the flies you find in stores or shops have a catch factor. They catch fishermen.

          I buy mine at fly shops or make my own, they handle the beatings they take much better than from places like Cabela's

            I have always tied my own. And then when I have a a fishing trip come up i go out and spend ten bucks and get me some extra flies. I like to use variations of patterns and change things up with color and flash. I will never forget that first big bass or that first trout I caught on a fly i tied.

                  I like to see the flies in the sporting goods stores and the fly shops, then I go home and tie them myself if I can. If I can't then I try anyways until I figure it out.

                    huntingkid95, look around at places like walmart for a simple fly tying kit. They carry them every so often. That's how I got started. Now, 15 years later I have a good selection of materials and tools so I can tie just about any fly I normally use. Start simple and take your time.

                      I like to make my own for the fun and reward of it.
