    I don't buy my flies, but if I did I would get them from Jerry aka hairwing530 who is a member of this site. Check his stuff out, it won't disappoint!

    +2 on recommending Jerry for buying flies!

    When you buy flies from Jerry, your money also helps him continue to teach brain cancer kids how to tie flies!

    Buy local if you can or Jerry if he’s got the time...... I 've never purchased from Jerry (Hairwing)...but he always gets high marks for his quality.

    When I do buy trout flies I purchase from these folks:

    1) The Flystop - Best Online Discount Fishing Trout Flies Plus Steelhead, Salmon, Bonefish, Tarpon, Bass TheFlyStop.com
    2) The Flyshack - FlyShack.com - Your Source for Quality Flies and Fly Fishing Gear
    3) Big Y Fly Co - Best Trout Fishing Flies-Discount Trout Flies

    There are many others....but those are the guys I personally use. They use quality hooks, don't fall apart and the pricing is very good. Plus each one has a brick and mortar physical shop. So you’re actually helping to keep a fly shop open.

    E-commerce is just part of having a successful fly shop. Are the flies tied in Kenya or Burma? You’ll have to ask.....but most are these days that are sold commercially.

    Some ideas for you at least.

    I'm with Denny--I tie my own, but if I did buy I'd go with hairwing/Jerry. I've never bought his flies, but they look gorgeous, and a lot of members of this forum swear by them which is good enough for me.

    After seeing flytie09's own hand-tied flies, I have no doubt that the three outfits he recommends are top-notch as well.

    I tie most of my own but have also bought several boxes from Jerry. Can't beat the price, quality or cause.
