There are many good books on fly tying. You can also obtain a lot of videos on YouTube. In the Orvis Learning Center are instructional videos on fly tying.

Where are you located? Maybe you can set up a short trip to someone in this group to give you some basic (and not so basic) instruction.

That is a good idea. There are a few local classes I am going to attend, they will get me a good start. I am located in Ashland WI.

I have attached a link (hopefully) to the "Flyfish Ohio" website that has some great tutorials on some Smallmouth patterns as well as a few other classics. The site developers haven't updated it with any new stuff in the past couple of years, but the site is still up and has a lot of great info. The guys who run the site are pretty well known in SW Ohio with the local fly fishing clubs etc.

Here are some of the patterns I would start with from their list that aren't too complicated, but will get you started with the basic fundamentals of tying.

-Black-nosed Dace- basic bucktail. pattern, when you first start, just use one or two colors of bucktail until you get it down......"Sparse" is the key when tying on material with this fly....

-Foxee red Clouser- a variation of the famous "Clouser" minnow

Shannon's Streamer- a quick, but effective tie

Puglisi Baitfish- "Sparse" is key again

- Murdich Minnow- primarily synthetic materials so it sheds water well which aids in casting. Also fairly durable for Pike....the bulky head moves a lot of water....

If I remember correctly, in your flybox thread, my flybox photos I posted, there are a couple of "Shannon Streamers" and "Murdich Minnows" amongst the flies.....
