Best Fly Tying Materials

Best Fly Tying Materials

Spring is finally here and after a full winter season of fly tying, it is time to replenish my materials. I have shopped at fly shops throughout the country, but Waters West in Port Angeles, WA has the best selection and quality of hooks, feathers and furs that I have ever found. Whether tying a classic salmon fly, a foam-bodied hopper or a swimmy saltwater bug, this place cannot be beat. Much of the dying is done in house and the colors are spot-on. Plus, the staff is incredibly knowledgeable. Give Dave Steinbaugh a call at 360.417.0937 or surf his website (www.waterswest.com) for the best fly tying materials.
