Default Re: material for flies?

Fly tying and accumulating materials can be fun but it also can be addictive. You might be better off picking a couple patterns, buy or trade for those materials, tie up a bunch until you get real proficient at that pattern and then move to the next pattern that would work in your area. The issue is that it seems like every new fly that comes out has been made with material you don't have so the compulsion is to rush out and get that material. As your stash gets bigger you will find ways to substitute s you don't have to have every type of material known to man. One source for cheap materials is craft stores another is EBay, but the best way like you stated earlier is hunting. Have fun learning to tie!
