Re: Beginner Fly Tying Assistance, Please
There is a bunch of fly tying materials in craft and sewing stores but as a beginner you won't know what is good or what would work for the flies you are tying. Subsurface flies should have body materials the adsorb water so they sink better. Dry flies need materials that don't absorb water so they will float better. You will be much better off getting the right material for the flies you are tying and after you get some experience you can branch out and experiment with new materials at the craft shop.
