Essential Fly Fishing & Fly Tying
Your information is protected.
Beginners Guide Book & Materials Kit - Just add tools & vice!
This book and the materials kit developed to match it makes the best basis you can have for learning to tie - apart from having a teacher sat by you. In addition to this kit you will need to select a vice and a tool kit of your choice - see our selections.
This is a really sound way to get started. The Beginners book is very well illustrated with computer generated graphics & very easy to follow. It teaches basic techniques for tying and then goes on to show how to tie 12 patterns* using the materials included in the matching kit. These are classic patterns which you will find in almost every anglers flybox but more importantly, by the time you have tied these patterns, you will have put into practice most of the techniques you will ever need to tie a fly.
This is a very sound way to learn to tie.
These are 12 the patterns illustrated. You may not recognise the names but the techniques they teach will be suitable to tie all the flies you need:-
- Black Ghost - demonstrating ribbing & hairwing
- Woolly Bugger - palmered hackle dressing
- Duck's Dun - cul-de-canard (cdc) dressing
- Greys Wulff - ducktail dry fly technique
- Elk Hair Caddis - dubbing & hairwing
- Parachute Emerger - parachute dressing
- Ginger Quill - wet fly wings & throat hackle
- Goldhead Hare's Ear - weighted goldhead & natural dubbing
- Montana Nymph - nymph hackling & marabou tails
