Re: Little brother has his fly rod.. but now?
I think it creates interest to tie flies that work well. This gives you a higher possibility of catching a fish on something you have tied.
So here are my suggestions on flies for Trout that will catch fish and are not hard to tie. I think any new fly fisher would have a good chance at success with these flies.:
Partridge and Peacock Soft Hackle
Black Crystal Bugger
Bead Head Scud
All of these are easy except for the Copper John and the Prince Nymph. I would work on the others before starting on them.
