Bought several from Millers Fly Shop in Longview. They have an on-line site. Now tie most myself.

I buy most of my flies from the Angler's Dream online fly shop. They have very low prices and they are located in Arlington, Texas so they ship pretty quick. However, some of the flies are a hit-or-miss as far as quality. One thing to NEVER buy there is a Zonker. They might hold up for one bass and that's it. Clouser minnows might hold up after a few bass, but tear up pretty quickly too.

But I really think tying is the best route; I just started getting into it.

I buy from http://www.bigyflyco.com/ when I'm too lazy to tie my own.

I back up what theflyguy3 is saying about Angler's Dream; bought 50+ flies from them and they are hit or miss. The zonkers blowup after one fish, lol! Cool they are local but.........

Like BoPro I buy most of my flies from BigY. Reasonably priced and pretty quick delivery. Free delivery for orders over $40. They have a huge selection.

Recently they were out of a lot of varieties of wooly buggers so I bought from Angler's Dream. They have held up as well as any I have ever owned. I also picked up some muddler minnows and bead head muddlers and no problems with those.

There is also an outfit called Bream Bugs that I have bought from, but most of their flys are more expensive than the other two.
