Thx for the input, everyone.
Let me precede the following by saying that I am anything but a great or knowledgeable fly fisher, am getting back into it after a 20+ year hiatus, and have no desire to tie my own flies and pls excuse me if the following sounds really ignorant, but $4 for a CUSTOM MADE WB of a size that ISN'T available in other stores doesn't sound steep to me IF Chris is a good tyer and quality materials are used, ESPECIALLY given the fact that the store's overhead has to be taken into account and that Chris quoted me that per fly price WITHOUT knowing how many I wanted (for ex, he could have been assuming I wanted just one in each of size 16, 14, and 12).
Will prob buy 10 WBs; if it saves me time & hassle and if Chris is as good as ppl here say, 40 is fine with me - esp if they catch me fish lol
This is Chris' business, hes a young guy, think maybe 20, but ties some very nice flies. http://yetifish.com/
