Hope I'm not over stepping my bounds but this is where I get my a lot of my tying stuff. He list (usually on the left hand side) how many units of that material he has in stock so you shouldn't run into back order problems.There are a few flies I see on here that I would LOVE to tie. I will need to order materials if it is not too much money. Some I will already have on hand probably. So please put materials in advance as much as possible. Nothing gets to me more than ordering, and they say they have it in stock, then they put me on backorder forever. Been there and done that way too many times. Anyway, this does sound like fun, and I cannot wait to get started.
Kelly,Can someone tell me what page the Grub Pattern fly is on? I am trying to see via the link provided, but cannot find a picture of the actual fly. I have a small assortment of black feathers, or dark...but probably not the quality needed on a salmon fly. Most of my good feathers are grizzly.
Neil, I have found Ronn Lucas' tutiorals to be very good and he offers some good adviceThere are a few sites that may be of help for certain techniques on tying on different materials. I found these three very helpful in the past & there are many others out there in the dark corners of the web
