Hey guys,

I've just started tying my own and must have done at least two good ones by now. Does anyone know of a good link that has lots of recipes?

thanks,
befuddled

 :D Befuddled, as look over these tutorial sites, pay close attention to the porportions that are used on each section of the fly. Try to keep a fly sort of slim and trim, tight and neat as you go from the tail towards the hookeye. You may have to take a fly apart several times to get it just right. Don't be afraid to do this. Learn to get it right from the start and it will carry thru as you move onto your next pattern. I wish you luck and if you need any personal help, please get on the board or PM me. There are lots of others that will glady share there knowledge and experience with you here.

Lots of good stuff out there. :)

As you are just beginning, let me suggest you go to FlyAnglers Online (wooly gave you the link), and pick 'Fly Tying' off the first menu.  The next menu has 'Beginning Tying', Intermediate Tying' and 'Advanced Tying'.  These are a series of lessons by Al Campbell that are an excellent tutorial of flytying.  If you work your way all the way through Intermediate Tying, you'll be able to tie up just about any fly you see.

You also need to add flytying materials to your family budget.  There'll always be something else you need, and some of the stuff ain't cheap. :o ;D ;D
