In a way yes, they're both common in using artificial lures but working them can be a little different. You can use flies on a spinning set up but they're not as agile as using fly tackles. Not many shop carries wide variety of flies except Coho, I saw some at five dots before but they've moved back to Ubi since.

COHO sells cheap fly combos and lures including flies and nymphs ?

Considering it is a niche market, I don't think you can find wide variety of flies elsewhere let alone finding them cheap. :sweatdrop:
