I really like fly tyers dungeon which probably isn't a surprise since I'm a bargain hunter. IMO they can't be beat . I they are my favorite and in my experience fish like them just as well is more expensive materials.

Didn't see it mentioned, but I could have missed it.

Add "Theriault Flies" to the list. They raise a lot of their own birds, not just chickens & raise various animals, plus process a lot of their materials themselves.

Family run business & very nice people to deal with.

x2 for J Stockard with their great selection and Fly Tyer's Dungeon. Two I didn't see mentioned are Caster's Fly Shop in N Carolina. They have free shipping and a great selection of materials. It is where I often go for something I can't find in the shops close to me. Also the Feather Emporium in Wisconsin. He has a lot of feathers beyond his nice selection of dry fly hackle.

I just found Alvin's (Theriault Flies) shop a month or so ago, he has everything, thousands of bird capes, its a great place to visit if you are in the area.

Coffin Creek Furs has a limited selection, but good stuff at good prices. Their kit muskrat hide will tie three lifetimes' worth of Adamses. (Best to store their stuff in a ziploc with mothballs or freeze it for a few weeks after it arrives to kill any latent bugs, because it doesn't come packaged.)

Fly Tying Furs Handles Quality Furs for your Fly Tying needs.

Not a fly shop, but another real good source for natural fur products is Paulette Fur Co. They sell via Ebay. I've purchased their craft grade fur products, whole tanned hides, several times & have always been happy with what I've gotten. I cut them up anyway to tie with them so craft grade is what I buy.

They have better grades too, but the prices will be higher. Shipping prices are not cheap, but IMO fair when combined on multiple purchases.

Depends on what you're willing to spend.

Just ordered a bunch of stuff from Red Shed fly shop (poppy). Great interaction and very good selection. From what I have received so far, the quality of the material looks to be better than most of my local store stuff, especially for steelhead flies.

thanks,
