We are very fortunate to have some great custom tyers living in our area that provide flies to us. The quality of the flies that these guys turn out is fantastic. These tyers are all excellent fly fishermen themselves and tie each one of their flies or spoons as if they are going to be fishing them. They are a little more expensive than the typical mass produced flies that we and many other retailers get from the overseas tyers, but they are worth it. They use only materials that they would use on their own flies and take pride in turning out a quality fly that is not only functional, it's durable and fish eat them.
