Re: Want to tie, need information.
Good advice from stimmy7. I would recommend buying an assortment of "Haretron" dubbing rather than a mask. These little boxes have a dozen compartments packed with a different color of dyed hare's ear and Antron (sparkle yarn) blend, use it everywhere hare's ear is called for...it will last a loong time. If you just buy a hare's mask and you will soon want more colors, then more and more. A good thing to buy through Cabela's. Do the same for dry fly dubbing, look for a "super fine" or such. These will get you going and keep you going for a long time.
And you should definitely join in the tie-along that william posted the link to. Pocono is going to explain the Pheasant tail, Gold-ribbed hare's ear, Prince nymph, Copper John, and others.
