    Now I like to see materials in person usually before I buy them, as I'm sure most people do. Having said that I'll leave WA for a bit over the holidays and might like to order some materials for the trip (i.e. I might be too busy to get all my steelhead materials in person before I leave).

    From speyman's posts I checked out his website irishangler.com. Looks like he has a real nice selection of spey stuff, etc.!! Has anyone ordered materials on-line from that website? If so, good experience? Happy with your stuff?

    Got any other on-line places you like to order materials from?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have ordered materials and gear from various websites, though not the one you mentioned, and have never had any problems. I like to visit my local fly shop regularly and always buy something, but somethings are just cheaper online.

    We also carry some of speyman's materials in our shop - I can vouch that his materials are high quality & I'm sure that the service via his web site will be outstanding too.

    Jack is first rate and a great knowledge base for fly tying and fly fishing for steelhead. I use a lot of his materials and he stands behind them 100%. Go for it, its all good.

    Also, if you want to check out his stuff before buying, I suggest attending one of his Spey tying roundtables. I know there is one on Sunday December 19 at 'All About The Fly' in Monroe.

    I have good luck from these guys for my trout and most steelhead materials

    http://www.traditionalangler.com


    I have bought quite alot of things from overseas but not sure I would recommend it to someone else.Only place I can find a bit of my salmonfly materials but feel like its risky everytime I order but have never had a problem.

    I have placed probably 12 orders with the above supplier without a hitch.Very fast shipping.
