I just purchased the Clearwater Tool Kit and Danvise from Orvis for a total of $115. This should give me somthing to grow into without a huge dent in my wallet.
Now - time to wade through all of the materials
I found lists of materials for Wooly Buggers and Clousers at "Pete's R&B"
6/0 Thread (3/0 was recommended)
Cement & Thinner
I stuck with common colors and ones that I prefer to fish locally - black, olive, chartreuse, silver, white, blue
I have a week or so before I get this stuff. Are there any other materials I should pickup to get started? Different thread sizes? I am starting with size 8-12 hooks.
FYI, my "kit" cost me about $200.
