    Default Overseas fly tying shops

    I find it difficult to find materials locally.Most shops are out of stock or just dont have what im looking for.
    Its often frustrating contacting 3 or 4 shops to try find the materials you are searching for.

    Can anyone here recommend a fly tying store overseas that they have dealt with,who have reasonable shipping rates?

    Morne @ African Angler is a very good local option. For overseas (I haven't ordered in ages) there are many JS Fishing, AA Outfitters, Bob Marriots and a few more.

    Remember, now, after the Christmas season, most shops inventories, will be very low.
    The shops are probably waiting for the new stock to arrive.
    Phone the shop, ask them when they expecting the new stock, and if you require something specific, maybe they can order with your current order.

    I have never NOT been able to find what I am looking for locally ito tying stuff. Sure, you'd have to phone and ask around a few places (not all shops will carry the same stock and everything you might need at that stage) but I could find what I was looking for.
