The flies look great, but they just don't hold up. Of the ones I've used so far, I'd say about half came untied after 1 or 2 fish caught. I'll have to see how the rest hold up and will adjust my review if needed.

I've purchased this fly selection--and others-- several times from STP. This time around, I purchased two different fly selections to stock a classic English-style fly box for my son-in-law, who's new to the sport. This will be his Christmas present. I've found these flies to be well-made, and the selection includes just about all the standard flies he will need for streams in Colorado. I occasionally tie my own flies, but for those that are small or otherwise complicated to tie, it's just easier to buy than to make them. As for value, if I were to calculate my own time in the cost of tying my own, I couldn't come close to STP prices. Besides, I'd usually rather spend my time on the water, not at the tying desk!
Each assortment is slightly different but the flys range from a size 8-16.

They range from 8 or 10 (for streamers) to 16 or 18 (nymphs and drys). The size range is right for western waters.

various sizes - woolly buggers are 6/8 and princes in the 12/14 range with the Hare's ear / Stimulators in the 16/18 ranges. they give you a couple of sizes with each type of fly. they are pretty much tied as shown in the photos.
