I love the opportunities the web gives us to become global citizens. I just got a 90% price reduction by buying in the US!
In a recent podcast I was talking about the price of fly tying material and in particular the price of synthetics. In a local shop I found a material used for a fly called The Mango, which will soon be published here on GFF. This material—Reflash Tubing from D's Flyes—was almost 60 Danish Kroners, or more than 10 US$ a bag! Yup! Ten dollars! For a strip of woven plastic! It is a nice material, but nothing sythetic is that nice unless it has diamonds woven into the braid.
10 dollars a bag!
1 dollar a bag!
