    Default Salty Bugger and other flies, where to buy ?

    Hi guys,

    Going to Cape Vidal for a week fishing , arranged only few days ago .
    Do not have time for tying flies , only few old and almost destroyed Salty Buggers left (tied by my friend Sudesh Pursuad, who also doesn't have time for tying right now) .
    SB's are my favoured fly pattern for Cape Vidal beach fly fishing .

    I don't like those "mass produced" flies one can buy in our FF stores , tied very poorly with wrong material on cheap hooks, and get apart after few fish..

    Is there any fly tier here on Fly Talk who sell decent Salt Buggers , small closers, whatever pattern - for light Salt Fishing with #6 weight rod , hook size size #4-6 , where #6 is preferable.

    This year I will try , for the first time, to fish my Epic Fast Glass rods in the Salt, #4 and #5 weight , so flies can be even smaller , down to #8 or even #10 hook size ? Did anyone tried so small flies in the Salt ?
    I have more than enough bigger flies for #9-12 weight rod, smaller ones are scarce .

    Willing to buy before depart for CV at 19th of April.

    If fish like the flies, I am keen to give casting lesson free of charge to lucky fly tier !

    Thanks in advance,
    Zoran

    ps
    here is the photo of Sudesh SB fly , from William , member of this site and member of Sexyloops as well .

    Nope sorry but I'll see you down there with my store bought flies.

    I'll be the guy playing around with the 7wt and #4 hooks if the wind is not blowing.
