In Topic: Fly tying kits

21 October 2008 - 09:50 AM

I started with a kit I got off ebay for 10 bucks (retail was 40 on it). within 1 week of having the kit I dropped a hundred bucks into a better bobbin (ceramic love it) and materials to tie the flies I wanted to make. I think the best thing to do is as others have said check into patterns of what you would like to tie and make a materials list and get the best tools you can afford (all this being if you are certain you will enjoy and continue tying).

currently using the Sunrise "A" vise that came in my starter kit (got the kit for 10 bucks off ebay and it gave me a great start into tying) I'm wanting to get a danvise. I have been hinting at the wife I want one so I have my fingers crossed lol!

I keep some of my more used items on my bench I made; the other stuff is kept in a tackle box and a small filing cabinet.
