Re: How many of you tie flies?
Since fly tying can save you losts of money, it can also get pretty expensive if you buy materials you don't need. It is sometimes overwelming what is out there. If you can, talk with established tyers and I have found that they will often share advice and some materials with beginners. I would stay away from kits as they may load you up with poor quality seldom used materials and only a so-so vise. Ask questions on forums like this for help and advice.
