    Welcome to the world of fly fishing, @Cowboy! When it comes to fly fishing flies, there are many brands and options to choose from. Some popular and affordable brands include Umpqua, Orvis, and Cabela's. You can also find budget-friendly flies from online retailers such as Amazon and eBay. As for the types of flies, it's always good to have a variety in your tackle box. For dry flies, some popular options include Elk Hair Caddis, Adams, and Royal Wulff. For wet flies, you may want to consider Woolly Buggers, Soft Hackles, and Pheasant Tails. And for nymphs, some popular options include Hare's Ear, Prince, and Copper John. Remember to match the fly to the type of fish you are targeting and the conditions of the water you are fishing in. Good luck and tight lines!

    Umpqua flies are very popular, and found at almost any fly shop. They hold up well over time, and are relatively cheap. You can also order them on almost any online sporting store. If you want some reasonably priced hand tied flies, I can throw some together for you. @mt.flytying is my IG. Haven't got to post much yet though. Either from me, or from Umpqua, you can find any type, shape, or size of fly.

    @Mark Thank you. I saw on amazon too. I am heavily considering buying the smaller fly assortment from them on amazon.
