  5. Devin Olsen at TacticalFlyfisher dot com has provided Troutstanding Service at very reasonable prices. They are my go to for hooks and beads. I have no complaints from them. Blue Quill Angler has good service and a low minimum purchase price for free shipping. Charlie’s Flybox has outstanding stock of materials and good service. They are a little on the pricey side, but you get good service. And as you have mentioned, Avid Max provides good service and a large inventory. They are close to home, so I rarely mail order from them.

  8. Consistency allows the fly tyer to vary single material components to improve performance, or to repeat past successes with a pattern.
  9. Have you reached out to Loon, and what was their response?
  10. Nice tie. If you are interested in critique, consider keeping the rib raps the same at 6 or 5 turns, whatever, just be consistent. Otherwise, looks good to me.
