Fly Tying Checklist
||Enough Tools? The more
expensive kits are expensive for a reason...more tools, usually.
Make sure that whatever kit you get has, first and foremost, a good
vise and a few good, high quality tools.
||Kit For a Beginner? If
so, find a kit that has a high-quality and usable vise. It's better
to have limited fly tying materials and a good vise, than vice versa.
A quality vise is everything when tying flies. If the vise stinks,
it will never be enjoyable to tie your own flies.
||Don't Forget The Book! Some
of the fly tying kits come with decent books full of patterns and
how-to guides. Others, however, don't. If you're buying a kit for
a new tyer, it never hurts to pick up a book
about fly tying. Don't
get an advanced book....get an inexpensive book targeted at beginners.
||Let There Be Light! Before
even buying a fly tying kit, make sure you have a place to use it.
First and foremost, the area must be well-lit. Tying flies in the
dark is a recipe for eye-strain and disasterous fly patterns.
