For some really hard-to-find stuff, check out these guys: Fly Tying Feathers, Furs and Equipment. Everything for Classic Salmon Fly Tying.

(I have admired their wares at fishing shows, but have not bought from them.)

+1 for Bear's Den, Stone River Outfitters, and Feather-craft.

Mike Hogue maintains a good site at www.eflytyer.com .

Anybody else miss Reed Tackle?

Will E. Hille ever get back on their feet after their fire?

fly tyers dungeon

jims fly shop

just remember there is no "mother" of all fly shop or online suppliers as no one can carry all materials
Right on flytire, I completely agree. It's good to have multiple sources and your list is solid.

The shops posted by all seem to get repeat mention or of the ones I've dealt with I always recommend. I hear Great Feathers has an incredible selection of materials as well. Another shop that has not been mentioned that I and recommend is Performance Flies. Kevin Compton is a super guy and has harder to find items not seen in lots of shops.

That's a good thing to know. Might actually get past the satisfactionnessly-challenged experiences I've had in the past and buy materials on line.

I've driven 3 hours to a fly shop I know and 3 hours back just to get $20 of materials. (Granted I do find excuses to drive, and I rebuilt the car I am driving by stripping it down to the unibody and then building back out, a little differently configured than stock.)

Wow. Are you sure you have the time for another hobby?

I can get back to getting a line wet and decorating trees again, and tying up some decorations. It's a '92 VW GTI with a engine/trans for autocross and a road racing suspension - not fun in stop-n-go traffic. Doesn't look like much or go all that fast, but is sure does get there quickly!

Gotta give love to Bob Marriott's.

How about blue-ribbon-flies.com? I'm thinking about ordering some zelon dubbing and it seems like they are the only ones who carry them. Do they have some kind of exclusive rights to zelon?

Red Shed is my local shop and cannot say enough good things about Poppy and his crew. His selection for steelhead materials is outstanding. Waterswest is another good source for salmon/steelhead. Had another shop I used to recommend but bought a cape and it was infested, so do not use them anymore. For general trout stuff the shops mentioned above are great. I try to buy more local so it gets here in a reasonable time so I use flyfishusa, leland, and the caddis fly shops.

Yes, the J. Stockard catalog is a fine thing to have.

For example, I had never even heard of "Swimming Hooks"
(half of hook behind the eye bent upward like a moving nymph)
until one day the catalog arrived and I found it.
The hook is the Daiichi 1770 and I've ordered bunches of them.

I've ordered different things from a handful of shops, the box stores and e-bay also can be a good source of supply, but watch those shipping costs.
Some of those e-bay dealers will scalp a fellow on the shipping costs.

That's Mike (Poppy). He is "The Man" if it has anything to do with Spey Rod Fishing. Anything.



One other very good place is "flyfishusa." Another major player in the 2hander world. Know about the Sandy River Spey 'Clave? That's Mark.
