Default Re: alternate fly tying materials

The flies that I'm tying today have bead chain eyes, craft fur tail, saddle hackle collar, and a deer body hair head.
Well you say... that all came from a fly shop and it's true, you can get all that stuff at a shop but that's not where I got mine.
The bead chain I collect years ago and I always salvage some when I find it.
The craft fur came from a dept. store. Bought long before you could find it in any fly shop.
The saddle hackle.... okay I bought that
The deer body hair came from a hunter and was personally dyed by me, myself.
