Stillwater fly patterns
« on: June 11, 2004, 12:50:37 PM »

In about 10 days I expect to be putting my flyrod together somewhere between Williams Lake and Bella Coola.  A couple of days ago I went through my tackle box and found lots of my flies are pretty moth eaten; plus, these are mostly flies I used to fish in shallow, flowing water.  So, I'm planning, as soon as I get to Vancouver, to visit some  shops and buy, among other things, a bunch of flies.  I'm hoping you  guys can tell me which patterns and sizes I should get.  Also, what should I expect to pay (more or less) for a tied fly?  

I also plan to stop at local fishing tackle shops nearer to where we will be fishing to find out what patters are currently doing best, and I'm wondering if I should put off buying flies entirely until I'm at that point in the trip.  Thanks for any suggestions or advice you have.

You can go to mostly any shop that has flies(mostly all) and ask them to fill it with flies for the area and species you are fishing for

Thanks Adanac,
I got in touch with ffisherman in Quesnel.  I'm gonna buy a box of his flies.  I think that should take care of it.  Sounds like a nice kid, too; I feel real good about giving him the business (so to speak).
