There are a number of good online "magazine" resources  as well. They have great articles, videos and fly "recipes".


Check out:


Fly Tyer


Fly Fusion


Fly Fisherman


Hatches (Fly Tying Magazine)


These should get you started on gathering info and seeing what's involved. Hatches has some great video tutorials as well.


Once you decide your going for it; check out this site for some very helpful information: http://globalflyfish...yper_guide.html


In fact, the site above has a wealth of information. Here's the Home Page link:


YouTube is also a great resource as stated above.


This should give you some info to get you informed and see if your interested in going through with it.


Hope it helps.

I started tying flies last season. I went out and picked up a very basic fly tying kit (can't remember where).


Then I watched "sport fishing, on the fly" on youtube. They post videos of show segments, one of which is instruction on fly tying.


I tied probably 40-50 flys, mostly buggers and mickey's. Served me well last season.


The best part for me was being able to tie the same fly in a wide variety of colors, and then experimenting with them.


I sure caught a ton of yellow perch with black buggers with a green tinselly type material in them.


The speckled trout in my lake love white mickey finns.


Good luck!
