    Hey im from yakima my favorite place to get materials is Fairbanks Outfitters owned by Gary Fairbanks. This shop is a great place to get info and materials. Gary also gives me a hard time when i should be out fishing and instead out doing yard work. One thing i have yet to find is a fly shop that will seel bulk chenille. Any ideas and what do you like and not like about your local fly shop?:beathead:

    If we had a fly shop, I would patronize it. Since we don't here in Whatcom County, I use Feathercraft, J Stockard, Cabelas, and Rip Lips. Rick

    I like my local fly shop, that being Creekside Anglers. How ever I don't like how hit and miss inventory can be. Since my family has being going to the Fly Shop in welches, Oregon since it opened in 1981. I shop there most of the time. If they don't have it, chances are they can get it. Plus they have the best website around, compared to other fly shop sites.

    I have two local shops that do me right. Close to home is Puget Sound Fly and close to work is Patrics. I spend entirely to much at both places according to my wife...
