I hope you can find a shop, but in the mean time...

you might be able to find a starter kit for tying freshwater flies for bass and panfish. These kits are the highest quality but they will get you started at a decent price with a vise, scissors, bodkin, hackle pliers, thread and feathers.

The types of flies I prefer are poppers, rabbit strip flies and minnow imitations for bass. For panfish a smaller popper or just about anything will do as they are not picky.

An easy fly that will catch both is the wooly worm. You should be able to find the pattern easily via google. If you can't maybe someone will post the pattern for you.

But watch out - tying is habit forming
