    Default Most fished flies INDIANA

    Located in Noblesville and just getting into fly tying.
    Wondering what flies to concentrate on so as not to buy materials I won't use.
    Thank you

    I would suggest starting with some buggers. They are easy to tie and catch fish. I would suggest getting some marabou, schlappen, polar flash, rubber legs, etc. I know Orvis in Carmel does "Fly Tying 101," and would be a good place to get some pointers. Last time I was in there, it looked like they had a tying table setup for anyone to use. Jason, the fishing manager, is great, and I'd bet he'd show you the ropes. I'm in Westfield, if you need anything, give me a shout, or if you need a certain material and can't find it, I probably have it.

    I'm not associated with them, but it would be worth your time to check out Wildcat Creek Outfitters in Zionsville, IN (north side of Indy). Great guys to deal with, LOTS of tying materials and fly fishing gear, as well as the occasional fly tying class. Chad, Marc and Mike are always super helpful if you have questions related to tying or just fly fishing the area.

    Yes, I agree with this as well. WCO is actually the shop I frequent, mainly due to their tying material section. From my experience, their tying classes are geared more toward those that know at least the basics. Either shop will get you squared away.
