    Default Materials.

    So, where is the best place you guys buy your materials, deal wise? I am looking at buying some multi pack hooks as well, any good deals in mind?

    For Hooks you might try Allen Fly Fishing
    Many on this forum has refered them to me for great hook deals. They have flies too, I'm not sure about materials

    Material you might try:

    Blue Ribbon Flies
    Charlie's FlyBox - Metro Denver, Colorado's Best Fly Fishing Retailer (flyshop) with online Fly Tying Tutorials

    I'd recommend Allen Fly Fishing for hooks. Great hooks and you won't find a better price.

    A great place I've found is Arts and Crafts shops. Wal Mart's hobby section also has
    materials you can use. Talk to hunters you might get a great deal on a skin. Thinking
    outside the fly shop could save you money not to mention something different

    Depends on what you're looking for- when you say "deal wise" are you looking ot buy materials in bulk?

    I've seen hooks sold in 1000s, and one of the few places I've seen that allows you to mix sizes within a style *IS* Allen Fly Fishing.

    But you won't find necks/capes/saddles in bulk, or most other materials unless you have a resale license and you're buying by the dozen or gross from manufacturers.

    Allen Fly Fishing hooks are good. I just used some. I haven't tried them fishing yet. I did touch it up with hook hone. For the price, I think you can't beat them. I like J Stockard, Conranch Hackle, Feather-Craft, Scott's Fly Shop on Ebay, and I do buy on Ebay as well. It just depends on what I need. I cannot find everything I want in one place. I buy from lots of different dealers.

    I will have to say, that one advantage to being a hunter, is having and abundance of rabbit, squirrel, and deer hair, ect. And I will definetly be checking out Allen, for some hooks! Thanks guys!

    Well you are lucky you can hunt and get some of your materials. I think you will like Allen hooks.

    The problem with one place is, there is no one place that carries everything you will someday want. I get some from Angler's Workshop, The Fly Shop of Redding CA, Cabella's, Feather Craft and a few others. If at all possible when traveling, I stop at local shops and buy stuff like Marabou, bucktail, deer hair, and stuff that is not all created equal. I on occasion order these things from a catalog, because I don't live anywhere near a fly shop, but you don't always get exactly what you want. Like bucktail that is real long and thin which won't flair, or deer hair that is long enough for big pike flies. Nothing beats looking at it first. Cabela's has a lot of great stuff, but does not carry things like Argus Pheasant feathers. Anglers workshop has Argus Pheasant feathers, but does not carry some of the stuff I may want to order along with my fly tying stuff. I would never be able to survive on one place. You would likely be better off not trying to either.

    Oh and road kill
