Thank you both for the information. I will check out the websites you mentioned jbummy. Anywhere I could save a buck I am interested. I just mentioned cabelas because they have a decent sale going until the 12th. Gonna grab a combo and a couple Pfleuger spin reels(not ready to give that up yet). Lv2nymph I guess I will look to begin tieing as well if I get into this. Definately not looking to drop that much cash. I will look for a local option as well as websites and go from there. Thank you both very much.

Keith, in case you haven't spotted it yet there's a thread in the gear talk section you might be interested in.

If it's the online fly purchasing links I definately checked it. Also I seen a post where you sad as a beginner don't complicate things by having too much in terms of flies. I think I will visit my local fly shop now that I found there is is one in my area I get ideas from them. That 500$ thought was enough to make me quit before I started. Just gonna try to keep things simple for now. Again thanks.

Keith - If you think you can drop $ on rods, wait until you see what tying can do to your wallet!

Well, that number was to obtain four of every fly/color on that list. No one that I know has gone out and purchased that many flies at once. The fly shop will be able to hook you up with a good list for your area to have to get you going initially and into fish. Have no fear, it won't be long if you're like most of the ffer's out there that you'll have more flies/patterns than you know what to do with!

Afish -

Thanks for this list. I'm considering it my "These are the flies I need to be able to tie" list.

I can do a couple of them that are at the "Fish-able" stage, but there is a lot of room for improvement.

it may be a knockoff of a hares ear but a walts worm is ez to tie and very productive. thats the most overlooked fly by far.

I've been thinking about this lately, I have been tying flies and flyfishing for over 30 years and have never tied or fished a Walt's Worm. They definitely look like they would work very well and I would advocate any new fly tyer to tie up some of these to catch your first fish on your own fly. Guess I'll have to crank out a few to fish on tandem rigs just to see it they beat out some of the higher tech patterns.

The first fly that I learned how to tie (way back in High School) was the Muskrat Nymph (no tail, no hackle, no legs ..... just muskrat fur with guard hairs dubbed on a nymph hook. They still work today just as well as they did back in the early 80's. Today when I tie them I usually throw on a woodduck fiber tail and maybe a soft hackle but I think that it all for me and not the fish. Keeping it simple is sometimes the answer.

^ I catch fish on muskrat nymphs. I did so this past weekend, as a matter of fact.

It was also the first fly I was taught to tie.
