Custom Spey flies for sale

It's that time to raise some gas money... here are some original and semi-original patterns, tied on the banks of the Hoh River.
1.) Hoh River Killer; 2.)Green Butt Golden; 3.) Morgan's Dee; 4.)Bogachiel Orange; 5.) Thunder & Lightning.
Many of these are a series which utilizes Lady Amherst as a Spey hackle, swims unbelievably. The Green Butt Golden has a bronze mallard wings that doesnt show up very well in the photo, that's how low they're set!
I have a minimum order of three flies per pattern, tied on either 1.5 or 3/0 Alec Jackson hooks. I typically fetch about $10/per but I'll get 'em out to you fellow spey pagers at $8/per fly. I accept PayPal, or just about anything, let me know what you got. I have limited internet connectivity, so if you Pm me and its been a couple of days, feel free to give me a call
(five zero three)9156615, ask for Neil. I'm also willing to do custom work if you have anything you'd like tied.

Although I don't see anything specific in the rules for selling on Classified that precludes selling your own ties, but I would think that such would constitute direct competition with several site sponsors (who do indeed support the 'pages for the privilege of advertising).

Have you applied to be, or already become a sponsor ??

Beautiful flies but I was thinking along the same lines as Specducer. Went through this with Weblyz previously. If you're not interested in becoming a sponsor you might want to consider selling your flies on ebay or setting up your own website.

I am curious how this is any different then selling used or "experienced" tackle (rods, reels, heads, etc.) in the classifieds. Poppy has a "experienced" tackle section at Red Shed and he is a sponsor, so aren't we all violating this policy when we post an ad?

P.S. Beautiful flies firsttube.

Flies are a tricky deal. I think selling a box full of flies would be OK but selling stuff to order or custom ties is crossing some line (a very gray line). I'm sure the mod's will chime in and clear it up for us.

No, Poppy and other sponsors run a business. This gentleman is offering to tie flies for a fee, i.e making money = a business. He is not offering his left over flies or flies he does not use. Most of the people using the classifieds are selling their personal equipment. I would also think he should be a site sponsor to sell flies commercially.
