Hi taltalOn,

Your post is confusing to us as fly fishers don't use baits like bass fishers. Are you asking about tying flies? This is your first post and a little more information would be helpful. Let us know what experience you have fly fishing. Please be more specific about your question. Welcome to the forum.

No wire, we use thread to hold it all together in most cases. May i suggest buying a book for beginners. Fly Tying for Beginners by Peter Gathercole is a good start.

well...first of all thank you all for your answers .
and yes , I ment to the thread that you use to tie flies .
I saw this kind of thread on the internet , I saw also that he's with wax (?) - that's how it stick all together .
I live in israel, so I have a problem to get this thread, unless I'll buy on ebay .
I'm looking for an alternative for this thread , is there ?
I have experience with fishing, but not in this kind of fishing, I'm a beginner .
I collect the information from the internet (videos, forums...) and tv shows .
there are'nt so many places here , in israel, for fly fishing, but I want to try it .

I'm not fully clear on whether you are interested in getting into fly tying along with fly fishing, or just one of those two hobbies. It is very possible and commonly done to just buy the flies you will fish with, thus eliminating the need for materials to tie your own flies.

Ok then, you will need good thread then. You can probably get by with all nylon sewing thread, if you can find some in the proper thickness. Wax on the thread isn't really necessary unless you want to apply dubbing to the thread, for trout-type flies.

It sounds like your best bet might be to order a fairly comprehensive tying kit, so you wouldn't have to be paying freight for multiple small packages, and also worrying about them all getting cleared through customs individually.

Good advise! Taltalon, sounds like a kit would be your best bet.
