I suspect you are looking at a very narrow and I mean very narrow regional situation. That particular 'fly shop' has customers who only fish flies of have a need for feathers of a particular type, obviously not dry fly. Expand outward and I hope you find a shop that carries some decent necks. All is not lost, as the spirit of fly fishing, be it dry or wet, still lives on and in many areas is getting even bigger and more popular.
