    You should have brought back all you need from the states imho.

    No great physical shops here (that I've found) - Southside tried to have a tying section but its really just a load of "stuff" chucked together.

    For natural materials check out cookshills.co.uk (sp?)

    Hooks, tools etc check out wharfedaleangling.co.uk

    I'd get 99% of my stuff from them...

    Ive been Tying bout a year on and off myself. So looking forward to getting them wet this year! :rolleyes: Iascanmore is right the shops just fire a load of stuff up on the shelf and it's Pricey! My last bit of shopping was in Rory's for some basics not a bad selection specially threads etc.

    MHardy's of Carlisle have a good selection of capes etc, some hard to find stuff also and they keep their prices keen.

    Check out irishflytying.com, just came up with it on a Google search. Seem to have a big selection and the prices aren't half bad.

    Yeah emailed irish fly tying myself. prices hard to beat, and they say they have a huge range of stuff thats not in the on line shop yet. Hoping to order a few capes and some other hard to find bits next week. If the range and service is as good as they claim it could be worth checking out. Nice to think we could spend our money at home instead of in the states for a change. Let you know if they live up to the promises.....
