also whats a good beginner easy wet fly to begin tying.
I love the excitment that yourself and others have for wanting to learn to tie.
If you have never tied before, I would find a local shop and see if they have a beginner class, you can use their equipment/ materials, get some good hands on experience and advice that will make things much easier.
There is a learning curve, having someone show you the basics can save alot of time and money, also you may find a new fishin buddy.
If there are no shops near, then keep an eye in the paper and you may see someone offering classes.
