Default Local Fly Shop or Buy Online?

While I like the idea of supporting local business, some online dealers offer free shipping, no sales tax and even things like free fly line with reels and/or rods. And, the bigger outfitters tend to have common items in stock. Good deals can be had on flies too...but the local guys often have advice on what to use and I don't mind buying some flies as appreciation for said advice, especially when venturing into new locations.

Which do you all prefer?
