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
- Pheasant Tail Nymph - pheasant tail & copper wire ribbing
- Shrimp / Scud - wire weighting & synthetic dubbing

We regret that we are unable to ship orders to Ireland, Channel Islands, Europe & Rest of World at the moment
DISPATCH. As far as possible, provided postage has been correctly paid and subject to payment being authorised, we aim to dispatch orders 'same working day' on a first class service. Please note where we specifically offer Next Day delivery this means we would use a very reliable carrier on a next working day service but we cannot actually guarantee next day delivery. This may be due to which part of the country you live in where a 2-5 day service may apply or because of high pressure on carriers at certain times of the year causing a short delay. So not guaranteed for next day delivery but we do our very best and rarely fail. We count 'working days' as Monday to Friday. Goods are not dispatched on Saturday or Sunday.
GOODS OUT OF STOCK. We make every effort to ensure that goods listed are in stock. Should goods be out of stock for day or two we will send them on separately ASAP. If we think they may be out of stock for longer we will contact you for your preference.
