Default I need an online source for flies

Second that vote for Hills Discount flies. They hooked me up with a discount when I mentioned it was my first order with them and that I had read good stuff about them on this forum. Brandon is a nice guy and the flies are well worth the money.

John: That was great, I got a real chuckle out of that.


Another source that I use from time to time on the really small stuff is BigHornFlies. Eric used to be a member here, but hasn't posted in quite awhile, he ties some really quality stuff and he is reasonably priced, most of his flies are $1.

Default Re: I need an online source for flies

I'm glad this thread started when it did.
I've been wanting to pick up some bass and maybe some pike flies from Flyshack. Most of what I'm hearing is about dries and trout flies. Does anyone have any input on their warmwater flies?

BTW: I've found a great source of information on flyfishing here.
Thank you!


Chris

O My God ... a flood of Warm and Fuzzy just enveloped Me. I think I'll take off all my bath robe and walk naked in the cold night air. Not sure how the neighbors will take to that .....

Default Re: I need an online source for flies

I am new to all of this, but I have been very satisfied with flyshack.com While I don't feel I have the experience to qualify their quality, their service is excellent. I ordered a couple of their assortments, one of which was out of stock on the website. I called to ask about it and they said they would piece one together for me. I have a few of there clouser minnows, and some other large flies and they appear to be well made, although I got them late in the season and didn't get much time fish them. They have free shipping over $35 and they are very quick.

If you're going to be walking naked, don't bring any of those defective lighters along.

When I go down south to fish there is a local guy with a shop I always stop by, super nice fellow, and he is a guide so he will point me in the right direction on what is working, I like buying his stuff since he is a Missourian like myself and does good business. Plus his pricing is hard to beat, the place is called Dead Drift Fly Shop for anyone visiting that area.
