My friend "John Ritchie" who is a flytyer/fisher and sells materials tools boocks at home buisness in london ontario canada called "JFM aka John's flytying materials", (id link ya but i dont think im allowed) Said this to me in a email reply to my email My email to him: are any of these good for beginners? what ones should i try? -------------------------------------------------------------- from: american flytying manual --------------------------------------------- badger spider black beetle black ant cinnamon ant picket pin fledermaus tups indispensable little green caddis beaverpelt cress bug mosquito larva ------------------------------------ from: nymph fishing rivers and streams --------------------------------------------- miracle midge cream midge ------------------------------------------------------ His reply: I would start with spider ant picket pin mosquito do a few of each till u get used to handling the tools anything with a dubbed body can be frustrating at first so practice learning how to do a dubbing loop till u have that down pat then try some of the fur body flies leave midges to end they seem easy but u need to have proper size threads and materials and some experience with the pressure you can use when tying or you will get frustrated with threads and material breaking and getting the proper proportions- also trout seem to be more picky on midge proportions so u want the them looking right.
