I second flytyer completely on this one. When I fist started out I thought I was doing pretty well buying $1 bass bugs.....
two or three casts and a quick hook up later, I was left with an unravelled feather tangle and a broken hook shank.....

You always have to be careful when buying flies.. sometimes you will find tremendous deals on great flies, but I never trust them unless I can inspect the fly and hook quality myself.
