Fly Tying Basics

Fly tying refers to constructing a fly using various materials that can be both natural or synthetic. Commonly, thread is used to secure different feathers, fibers, or fur onto a hook in such a way that it resembles something that a fish will want to eat or attack. Learning how to whip up your own flies can not only help you save money, but you'll be able to customize existing patterns or (better yet) develop your own one-of-a-kind creations. On top of these positive aspects, catching a fish on a fly you personally tied is extremely satisfying! It does require some patience and concentration, but it can be very rewarding in so many ways.
