While there are several good mail order suppliers (check Flytier Mag.) I might suggest that the very best way is to tie your own. I have been fly fishing for a number of years & a big part of the whole satisfaction to the sport for me has been tying my own flies. Cheap it isn't, although you don't have to buy the very best Orvis has to offer. Fly tying makes the sport year round. It is not difficult to reproduce the classic flies & it is a big thrill to invent your own pattern and then entice a trout to try it. I live in Roswell & several years ago about 8-10 guys would get together, in the winter, about once a month at Call of The Wild for a Saturday morning of tying. Just one more way to enjoy the sport!
