Default Good sources for marabou and chenille?

I need some marabou, chenille and dyed buck tail as I use a lot of these. I don't want to pay Orvis prices. Does anyone have any craft store or ebay tips?

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

We used to have two of those. Then Gander Mountain came to town and drove them both under. After that, they barely carry any tying stuff.
So as of now, I'm on the net for supplies.

As Mike suggested, I also use J Stockard and also FeatherCraft for fly tying materials. It is much preferred to buy where you can see first hand the quality, but that isn't always possible. My local fly shop doesn't carry much in the way of fly tying materials.

My "local" fly shop is a two hour drive from my house...I rarely get to buy things in person for fly-tying. I have to trust a good supplier to do right by me. Maybe I should retire and open my own shop!
