Default Craft stores

Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby etc. Look at the yarn. Lots of the stuff is darn near identical to what you'd buy in a fly shop for about 100X the price.

My chicken yard has produced lots of fine feathers when we kill roosters.

Bucktail and squirrel tails are great too.

You really do not absolutely have anything but good sizzors. Many fly tiers use only thier hands instead of a vise. I tie lots of my flies without vise. A good thread bobbin is a very handy tool but i tied without one for years.

It seems kinda stupid to me to buy a $500 vise to tie maybe 20 flies per year. There are plenty of good vises around for less than $50 and decent ones for $10 on E-bay.

You can find almost everything between feather craft and www.saltwaterflies.com. The owner of saltwaterflies.com, Chris, comes down to Pensacola annually to enjoy the fly fishing opportunities here. He's a great guy that will help you pick out the right colors for our "water" here.
