I have been getting into fly tying lately but I am in need of more materials. I also would like to tie a few buck tails before hitting the water this weekend. Does anyone know of places around sioux city where you can pickup some materials?TeamAsgrowParticipantMarch 14, 2017 at 7:29 pmPost count: 9152
I have found nothing local, I buy my tying supplies all online.gone bassinParticipantMay 25, 2017 at 12:52 pmPost count: 371
I use eBay. It’s the best source I’ve found to buy anything related to fly tying. I figure out what I want from another website and compare prices on eBay. Usually eBay has a better price for the same thing.nlarParticipantMay 25, 2017 at 4:09 pmPost count: 1483
Your pretty much SOL around these parts for fly tying materials, once you start going west things improve. I do the same and find what I want in magazines and on line then purchase off of ebay, I save a bunch going that route. If you pheasant hunt skin your roosters, I have several skins in the freezer and you can make a lot of different fly’s from a pheasant, same with saving a piece of deer hide.fishnmylifeawayParticipantMay 28, 2017 at 4:50 pmPost count: 171

My top two online resources are 1)Jann’s Netcraft, and 2) Feathercraft Fly Fishing/Tying. Both have a great online store. Hobby Lobby and Michael’s sometimes have items you could use in a pinch, but I much prefer going to my online resources to get the right thing.kenhumpParticipantMay 28, 2017 at 10:19 pmPost count: 12770

Yep add a woodduck and mallard drake and and you can not only come up with the basic models but let your imagination run wild with some really cool fly’s.cys_av8rParticipantJuly 6, 2017 at 5:19 pmPost count: 179
Scheels has some stuff, expensive however.
Sportsman’s Warehouse in Ankeny is the best place around for selection and price. I realize that isn’t the in the Sioux City area, but if you get in the Des Moines area you could stock up there.
