  2. I would say DO NOT BUY A KIT . i got a kit cheap i havent used anything in it and the tools suck . call james at j stockard there link is at the top right of the web page . he is very nice get you a vise and pick out one pattern to tie and tie a bunch of that and move on from there .

  6. As far as mats and some tools i buy alot form www.jsflyfishing.com/ ask for james. i buy all my mail order stuff from him . tell him what you are wanting to tie and he will do the rest . i good guy to deal with . spent about 150 there in the last month and about that at gander mnt. do you have a bass pro are cabales close or an orvis . to were you can go look at some stuff
