How To Start Tying Flies

If you happened upon a few extra gift cards this holiday season, why not consider starting a new hobby?  Fly tying is a great way to add a new dimension to your fishing experience.  There are a ton of reasons why you should do it. Click this to read more.

Here is how I suggest you get started. 
  • Pick a fly you would like to start tying. (Start with a simple nymph or streamer that you fish a lot).
  • Go online and search for a recipe for that fly and a video demonstration on how to tie it.
  • Make a list of the material you need.  Include: A vice, tying scissors, head cement, and a Black Bodkin with a Half Hitch tool and all the materials listed on the fly recipe.  Don’t forget the hooks.
  • Go to a fly shop (in person or online…email me for suggestions) and shop.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
