Fly Tying Resources

Recommended Posts

riverrunner

Hey there,

I've realized unfortunately my tying vice got left behind the last time I moved. I don't remember the model but it was a fairly basic table clamp style vice. I would be curious to hear people's recommendations for a new one, budget being up to 100-150? Do you prefer the clamp or the stand? 

 

Also, what are peoples favorite resources for tying? Any book recommendations/YouTube channels/websites etc. For people who are fairly new? Interested in tying some big streamers for throwing at rivermouths but also nymphs and egg patterns. Is there a tying 'bible' that I should have? 

 

Thanks for your tips!

I frequently use YouTube for finding new patterns as well as the Fly Fish Food website http://www.flyfishfood.com/p/fly-tying-tutorials.html

 

I also recently picked up a decent book called The Fly Tying Bible, and while searching for a purchase link for you, stumbled upon the PDF version of the book!  Here it is....

 

Good luck to you and enjoy the tying!!
