Fly tying kits

Recommended Posts

just buy what you need i got a kit tied with it for about a week ran out of materials and had the hook slip all day on anything smaller then 16. go to a shop buy some quality stuff and enjoy with out the frustrations of a hook slipping out right as you start to whip finish a hare's ear

I am certainly no expert, so weigh my comments with that in mind. I don't know Al Beatty personally but have downloaded his instructional videos and appreciate his work with the newbies (me included). He offers a tool kit and a tying station with vise and tool kit. See http://www.btsflyfishing.com/catalog/page4-5.htm


The videos are pinned in "Beginners Corner". You might want to watch a couple of them first.


I agree with the others, the low end kits with materials are not the way to go.
