rich,

My jaw dropped when I saw the prices. $5-10 or more per head is way over my head. (Beat that Rob G.)

Good question about how real.  Though I do not use it much any more I have caught a lot of SM Bass on a Mickey Fin streamer which only vaguely resembles a fish or bug. I believe that matching the action of the hatch is way more important than matching the looks. The Red and White is another example of a bug that works but has no counterpart in nature. A white minnow with a red head?

I agree with Mike. A friend of mine says, "It's not so much the fly you fish as it is how you fish the fly." Not to say a fly's build is not also important. It has to be able to do what you want it to do.

I bet more labor went into those flies than a manufactured hard bait. I guess it pays to be a skilled tyer!
