    I can't comment on Fishtec flies, but I have bought off these guys - they're a Yorkshire based firm too. I was really impressed with the quality.

    So many mail order flies are tied in bulk - literally! They are overdressed and clumsy looking.

    The most effective flies tend to be the most sparsely dressed as they look far more natural and look more lifelike either in, or on the water. Don't think you buying less for you're money - you're buying a far better fly!

    Re: Anglers Lodge Online

    I buy all my fishing tackle and fly tying materials from www.anglers-lodge.co.uk who have the best tackle shop in the North east.
    I always visit the shop which is at Jubilee Trout Lakes at Redworth nr Darlington.
    As well as being on of the most popular Troutfisheries in England the tackle shop is well worth the visit in my opinion. :happy:pB

    i ordered some flies in the end, they arrived quick. they seem alright to me having had a look at them. i bought some from the dragonflies website too, these were cheaper they also were finished well and came with a free box. thanks lads for the other websites, i'll have a scout through them. looking forward to opening day at lock wood beck, only a week away now, just hope it warms up a bit and this rain disappears!
