Re: Buying flies on a budget...
If you decide to start tying, a word of advice, stay away from fly pattern guides and web sites. They'll only serve to fuel your addiction. Your fly tying kit, ecomes your fly tying desk, then your fly tying room, then your fly tying studio.... before you know it, you're buying a bigger house.
