Re: good starting kit?
THe best advuce can give to a new tyer is to NOT start with dry flies. Start with good catchers like the wooly buggers and such. Then progress over to wetflies/nymphs...and lastly the dries.Keeping the salmon streamers and Geyghosts for much later. Build a body of experience and tye specific kinds of flies. Then as you master each tye ...move on and add to the larder to tye another pattern or type. Go slow.. and enjoy the process.
