Default Re: Couple Beginner tying questions

"For materials all depends on what you are going to be tying, but genearally a good start would be Pheasant tail, dubbing (awesome possum give great buggy flies), some flash material either loose or spooled, wires, silver and gold to start, peacock herl."

This is a great starting trout list. A variety of possum dubbing, some #14 scud hooks, and some lead wire can catch fish for a long time. This to me would be the absolute cheapest and most efficient way to start. My next suggestions would be a hare's mask, some dyed mallard flank, and black marabou in addition to the earlier mentioned materials.
