Fly tying materials

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a favorite place to get them from ? The only place around here is Basspro and they don't have much of a selection. I have ordered from several places but no one place ever has everything I need so shipping is a killer.

FlySouth in Nashville, if I'm nearby. My go to is a little local store in Tullahoma; Tim's Flies & Lies.

I also keep tails from deer I've shot, neck capes from some of my surplus roosters & I kept a 6"×6" patch of elk skin this past fall.

You don't live in a fly fishing mecca by any means so you're gonna be relegated to online purchase.  Have you looked at the big retailers like https://www.feather-craft.com/ that's where I'd go.  If they don't have what you need your gonna just have to bite the bullet and pay multiple shipping charges.

 Thank you, I'd forgotten all about feather craft. The last time I ordered from them was pre-internet (mail in order using their order form from catalog or call their 1-800 number).

This intersection (visit the website to ask for a mailed catalog) put a smile on my face.

Sportsmans Warehouse in Southaven has a short wall of materials.  Since I don't tie flies, I couldn't tell you if it's a good selection or not.  Seemed decent though.
