They say a picture's worth a thousand words. So, here's a picture of what I'll be using for materials for the first tie; the grub pattern:
The materials in the picture are listed on the 3rd page of this thread (in my message to Kelkay). As I've said before, you can substitute materials for the ones that I'll be using. As long as you have hooks that are long enough, thread, a body material, an oval tinsel, and a long hackle, you should be OK.
I'll try to post the step-by-step for the grub pattern next weekend.
