Default Re: Beginner fly tying

Great! I'm glad you found a vise. Regarding the other materials to get, focus on the main flies you like to fish and buy just what you need to tie those. That will help keep you under budget. If you struggle with it, let us know the flies you want to tie and people here will let you know what to buy. Often someone knows a less expensive version of some of the materials sold in fly shops.

If you're wondering about tools: bobbin with a ceramic insert, bobbin threader, all purpose Dr Slick scissors, pair of cheap scissors to cut hair and wire, whip finisher, hair stacker (if you need it for patterns you want to tie), and a bodkin would be my suggestions.
