Re: Tying versus Buying


agreed, When I said kit I was talking about a tying "tools" kit, not materials.

Materials are a whole other discussion.

Re: tying questions about weighting flies

just a thought, don't be afraid to just use copper wire as a wrap on your hook as well. Lead is heavier obviously, but you can also use wire to add weight, just wrap it on the hook like a thread...

Re: Waders for a beginner. Thinking Redington Crosswater. Any thoughts?

If there is one piece of gear I will not skimp on again it is waders. I have tried the cheap ones, get a good set of waders even if you have to save up for them.

Re: Fly casting question.

It may not be a "long cast" but it is a long enough cast for 90% of trout fishing, river or stillwater from a tube. 50 feet is plenty long enough to get into fish on most of the water I fish.

Re: So, there's this big beaver in my driveway....

Dont use beaver much for tying, but, if you cut 1/8 inch strips about 6 inches long they make great string silencers for a bow.
