ASk any fly guy to tie you up a bunch.
Basic ones take 2 minutes
Now if you want a pattern it may take a little longer
I like small decievers myself, color changes with bait changes but pink an blue over white seems best for me.

I'm with you on this. I wanted flies with my last order, but all were sold out. I feel buying from the online store or BST will give me a decent price, reliability, and be a way to payback for the information I'm sucking up from here. I'm leaning towards putting a WTB on BST for some flies (flys?).

Problem with that is, you'd be asking someone to break the rules as we don't allow people to sell items they make here - we consider that "business" use.





As far as the online store and teasers/flies - no, they will not be restocked...sorry I run this site alone, including the online store, there simply is not enough time to tie flies/teasers any longer. I enjoyed tying them when there was time, I really like tying flies...I haven't even tied any for my own use in the last year

Tim, I dont want ya to take this the wrong way ok, but You say he's breaking the rules by asking for teasers in the BST, yet you have a sub-forum for people wanting to buy plugs here:
http://www.striperso....play.php?f=205
Do you mean he cant ask people to sell new teasers that they made (Which I do know is commercial resale), or that teasers just cant be sold? I'm a bit confused. Say he put a WTB teasers thread up, and I had 20 or so sitting around that I wanted to sell him, I dont tie teasers, these are ones I bought that I dont want or need anymore, that would be against the rules?

I believe Tim'S beef is with people selling the flys that they make. As per how I understand the rules, if someone has some commercially bought flies (or anything else) which are not of use to them anymore, they can sell or trade them. This transaction should not result in a profit and the intentions of the seller during the original purchase should not to resell it for a profit.

I understand and agree with Tim'S point and probably will place a WTB for non-self-made flies.

Dave, the difference being the folks selling those plugs DID NOT make those plugs If they had, they wouldn't be allowed to sell them.



You are correct, if he put up a WTB thread for teasers and folks responded offering him teasers they didn't tie, it wouldn't be a problem. The problem is, whenever it comes to jigs, bucktails or flies, the folks who historically respond are folks offering to make them for the guy to buy. That's commercial.



So I apologize for not being clear. The WTB thread itself would not be breaking any rules - if folks responded offering flies they purchased rather than flies they tied, there wouldn't be any problem. I should have said such a thread is "likely" to encourage folks to break the rules and risk having themselves removed from that forum
