Hi, I was planning on selling flies and putting them in shadow boxes or something but I don't know what kind of flies people are looking for. Any suggestions on flies to tie and sell. Thanks

I wish you luck its a tough business to crack with little $$ for your efforts and if its framing flies you want to tie than you have to be on your A game with great Maritime Tiers like Dwayne Miller and Damian Welsh selling framed classics at $150 a pop

I'm with you LaHaves. There's a lot of competition in that market and the market isn't all that large.
Brendan - you might be better off trying to find an unfilled niche. You've probably seen magazines featuring flies tied so life-like they look real. I haven't seen them around here because classic salmon's are the preferred art, but there might be some demand the "reals" and the market might be wider. People interested in insects might like them. Just an off-the-cuff suggestion, but you get the idea of finding a niche.
