ok. I just bought a vice, but I have nothing to tie flies with and I'm really not sure all the basic stuff that I "need" to tie some basic flies. I know I need thread, but what size and type? I know I need glue, but what kind? So many things to buy, but I'm just not totally sure what I really need. So far on my to get list I have: Ceramic Bobbin All Purpose Scissors Soft Tip Hackle Pliers? Whip Finisher Dubbing Hook? All Dr Slick stuff the one to get, or would the cheaper brands be just as good? Thread. Not sure what size or sizes to get or what types of thread I should have on hand. Glue. Something fast drying, that is not too thick, holds strong, easy to apply and doesn't leave white residue when it dries. Feathers, Furs and Yarns.. I know to get a couple colors of Dubbing, but do I get pretty much whatever feathers and fur, or do I really need to be accurate on what I choose for the type of fly I am tying? I have a little bit of a idea of what I may need from a previous thread, but I just don't want to forget any must have items. Right now, I'm just trying to get a basic setup to get me started and I only want to make 1 stop at the fly shop or online order, then after I get to making flies, I can figure out what I need and what I don't need. Hooks. I see so many different style, but not sure the size or eye position or length would be best if I was to get 1 size for all. Hackle flies and Woolly buggers is probably a good start. Rivers, Lakes and Streams. Larger trout is pretty much what I would be trying to catch and Steelhead. Wet and dry. Not going to be buying anything for another week or so, so I have time to gather info until then. Just looking around on websites, there is just so much stuff that It's almost impossible to know what to get since I don't know exactly how each feather type is used.. I will be reading up on fly tying and how to videos, but I just posted encase someone had some extra time and wanted to help with my list of things to get.
