    eBay has always had some decent prices.
    If you are near Baltimore, Tochterman's on Eastern Ave. has a real nice fly shop upstairs.

    Barlow's has some tying supplies, and JStockard, as Mark mentions is quite good.

    I should have mentioned that I don't usually use tony's in water deeper than 6 feet or so.

    Both are good for feathers, hooks, tools and miscellaneous supplies.

    But for bucktails I go to Bass Pro or other stores where I can see them in person before I buy them. I like a soft textured bucktails and I like to see the actual colors.
    Thanks, I'll check them out.

    Here's another supplier I use:

    http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/

    I get my spinner hardware from them in addition to occasional fly tying items, especially threads.

    Good luck. There's no shortage of suppliers. All those mentioned are well stocked and ship fast.

    My preferred white perch lure is a 1/16 to 1/8 inline spinner, with the treble swapped out to a single hook. I use RoosterTails as they have the hair tied to the shaft, so it remains when I change the hook.

    I need to figure out how to tie that little tuft of hair, it is the only thing stopping me from being able to make my own spinners.

    Look at using hackle or a "dubbing loop" there's lots of videos on YouTube

    Or just tie a little bucktail or Crystal Flash to the single hook, and don't worry about the spinner body.

    The hackle or hair is nice but I guarantee you that that your spinner will work with a bare hook.

    That said, and as pointed out above, there are plenty of tying videos on-line. Just remember -- use 1/2 as much hair or feathers as you think you need. A little bit of trying materials goes a long way and actually makes a nicer looking lure.
