I've tried some of the discount shops and Caylor. Hands down Caylor's flies are better. You can't get much cheaper honestly and get a product that you'd want to fish. If you consider durability and time taken to retie a fly, a quality fly will actually serve you better than a discount fly will.

The only exception to that that I have found is if you're fishing in what I consider hazardous waters, lots of low hanging limbs and underwater obstructions. In that case, I'd rather break off a cheap fly than an expensive one.
