Default Best online fly shop

Alright, so I have been fly fishing for one year, and have mostly been buying my flies from an Orvis store...I don't think they are terribly expensive, but they add up quickly. Is there an online store that has good prices and "good quality" flies?
Maybe one day I'll start to tie my own

There are a number of sites for cheap flies, the one mentioned is a great one. My recommendation is be sure the dries you get are good quality. It can be worth paying up a bit for good dries. Tying is a great way to get quality flies.

I see you're in SE Wisconsin, what are you going to be fishing for, that will get you some suggestions for fly patterns.

Well, when I like to fish for trout(when I can find time to drive a bit)
but in the summer I also like to fish for bluegills and bass.
And in the spring/fall I fish the steelhead run... or at least I try.

So if anyone could give me a bunch of great pattern( mostly for the trout), I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again.
