Default Re: fly tying starter set

Personally, I wouldn't recommend a started kit, most of the material in a kit you will never use. I'd recommend you pick up a copy of Charlie Craven's book "Basic Fly Tying". It is the best book I have seen for starting out. In the book he will recommend the basic tools and how to use them and starts off each fly with a list of matierials. Buying materials as you need them will result in a lot less waste then buying a basic kit.

Here is a good place to look for materials and tools for fly tying:
