You could also try


Bit cheaper, but this is probably down to the quality of the hook.

Quite the price...

There is some Fulling mill sets going around, might be worth a look in..

These guys are quite good and pretty reasonably priced. I normally get my trout flies from them but as far as I remember they also stock some salt-water flies. Might be worth a look.

I suggest either you buy from oz, or tie them yourself.

These flies are good quality (I can vouch for the fact that the hooks will not shatter off rocks like some of the others on back casts). They always charge me the quoted dollar price which makes them very cheap. I've been using them for the past 2 years now. Their sites is a bit quaint but don't let that put you off.

I can get everything i want here except Sandeel patterns, I'm asking them to start making some of these if they can.
