Default Re: Fly tying beginner

Getting started into fly tying is an exciting adventure.

But as the previous reply mentioned there is more to fly
tying than just the vise.

I also would suggest that prior to purchasing all the items
required to tie your own that you seek out a local flyshop &
take a fly tying class.

I guess that economics always comes into play in almost
all we want to try our hands at doing.

I believe that spending $50 bucks or so on a class to decide
if you like tying is better than spending $$ on a vise & all the
related equipment.

If you decide that it is something you'd like to do than I might
suggest a Peak Vise. They are a reasonable price for a true
rotary vise. I love mine. I've been tying my own flies for a long
time & it is defintely worth doing. ( my first vise was a cheap one,
non-rotary, that I used until I did some research on the internet &
bought my Peak. ) Check with the Full Creel he sells the Peak &
other brands.

Hope you find tying to be as rewarding as I do. Catching fish on
your own flies is great.
