Anchorage - fly shop

Hey guys!
I'm visiting Alaska in July and before hit the road to Copper Valley I would like to get some shopping done. I've googled a few stores and checked their online offers. I'm planning to buy spare skagit heads and custom cut tips (T14 - T20) when I get there but so far I've found skagit heads (only Rio, no Airflo) and no custom cut tips. Is it possible they don't sell it or maybe they don't offer it online? Can you recommend me some good fly shop in Anchorage?
Cheers

Lukasz

Why not

just use one of the great sponsors on this site? Mark at Welches or Poppy at Red Shed. You will spend enough that shipping is free and you can get some good advice for free while you order.

Try Mountain View Sports Center or Mossy's Fly Shop, both are located in Anchorage.

Anchorage Fly Shops

To piggyback on what pescaphile said, I know Mtn View Sports carrries Airflo, Mossy's also deals Airflo. I would also try World Wide Anglers. All good places with great people. Mossy's is closest shop to the airport. However, I would give all of them a call. I am sure they could have what you wanted waiting for you when you arrived.

Mossy's or Worldwide Anglers. Advantage of stopping in local shops is you can get the flies suited for what you are targeting and some good local advice. Both are friends and excellent guys. I would recommend going to both if you have time.

Thanks guys! So they do deal Airflo although they don't sell it on-line. Good to know. I'll drop them an email with enquiry before we arrive to States. Only two months to go, I think I can handle this
