    On Topic

    I am finally getting back to tying (again). Where is the best place on line to buy supplies...not much interested in cabelas, the shipping will be as much as the order. Any recommendations? I have a jar to fill. Once full I should have my "skills" back. Any help is most appreciated.
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    That's a hard question to answer. It's been my experience that while one item is a great price, the other is out of line with many vendors. You really have to shop around, and where material is concerned I want to put my hands and eyes on it. Even with hooks. Unless its a known hook like the 600 SP 3/0 for me I never know if the size and gaps are what I'm looking for. That said I do alot of shopping at Bears Den.

    All I am really looking for is hooks, some thread and some soft hackle. I can get those anywhere. Just wondering if there is somewhere that "you" believe in...like my belief in Fleet Farm haha. I am going to focus at least 50% of the time on fishing wet flies this year. Later, I'll be adding more.

    Hi Mike, hope all is well.

    I'm lucky enough to live a few blocks from a really good fly shop. (Free Stone - Hamilton MT) and what I can't get there I usually order from FeatherCraft - http://www.feather-craft.com/

    Very cool that you're getting back into it! I try to keep things local but when they don't have something I hit up Amazon online.

    All is very well. It's been two years of not even caring if the sun came up...I didn't even care about taking "pictures." That all changed five weeks after the "procedure." Lucky you. No more fly shops anywhere near here, not even a crummy Gander Mt. I've bought a lot of stuff from feathercraft over the years I expect I'll be going there tomorrow.

    For sure. Get an amazon prime account if you don't have one. reading between the lines, it looks to me like you live in at least a semi-rural area. You'll thank me.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I kinda hate Amazon...but I know....I know.... I've got a long way to getting back, when that small jar is filled....but damn I can't even remember my Yellow Sally tie...that one that Mundinger coveted...and which beat his azz on that one day on the upper Gallatin. I think I remember how I did it...but I won't know until I get back out west.

    My son is going to be building a forge this spring....I have lots of ideas.......
