    Anyone know of local shops that carry an assortment of different colored rooster grizzle saddle hackle, sticker type jungle clock, and other various exotic feathers. It seems every time I go to a shop they have one thing or the other and I never end up getting everything I need. Looking to get material to tie a various assortment of spey flies. I have all the basic materials now.

    The Fly Fisher in Lacey has most things. It's a small shop but somehow Bjorn manages to pull crap out from somewhere whenever I need it. It's a bit south of you, but if you're in the area you should stop in:

    In Tacoma there is a WFF sponsor http://www.pugetsoundflyco.com/, Even if something is not in stock, they could probably get it for you, unless you're looking for really odd stuff (fruit crow, dodo bird or pterydactyl).

    Call the guys at Waters West in Port Angeles. They'll have whatever you need in top quality and mail it to you from close enough to arrive in 1-2 days.

    Just a couple of feathers left now, seems those big beasts have disappeared. Or maybe what is left is Ostrich, old guys, old eyes and old memory does not make for good recollection of what is what anymore.:D

    If you live in the land of Saturday night hockey, you could buy some nice Heron.
