Re: Beginner fly tyers material list
tiemco is an excellent choice for hooks but with the quality of today's hooks from the mom & pop distributors, i feel there's no need to tie a new tyer down to specific hook manufacturers. thats why my list above is generic.
i would also recommend barbless hooks but that too becomes a personal preference and that becomes the splitting hairs the list was trying to avoid.
i will add to my list above a style of hook such as dry, nymph and streamer.
Stick to buying flies....it's a lot cheaper
Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.
YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!
Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!
You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
