Thanks fly tyer!
Thanks for the info, Fly tyer. I appreciate your help and will look into buying some quality tools to get started. What about fly tying materials? Are there large differences in quality in fly tying materials? What about dry fly hackle and grades of rooster necks?
The flies I use most often and would concentrate on tying are Adams, Caddis, Royal Wulff, and Royal Coachman dry flies, as well as muddler minnows and hare's ear nymphs. I fish most often on smaller streams for brook and brown trout and typically use dry flies, sizes 12-18. Any general suggestions on the types of fly tying materials I should use?
