Dennisv58, that's some great reading you suggested. Are all of those still in print?

Thanks guys for all the great resources. Do these books also include floss and yarn?

I'm unlikely to tie the art on a hook that many of these mentors can achieve. If I'm attempting a pattern because I think it'll catch fish, I'll often substitute whatever material I have on hand if it looks right and similar to what I'm trying to copy. If I can get a good close copy of a pattern without having to buy more material, it makes me happy. Especially if it's a material with a limited use or a high price.
