The set of tools according to other reviews may not be the greatest. However, I have been fly-fishing for a very long time and I thought it is about time I learn to tie my own flies. So I didn’t want to spend a ton of money to learn. The more annoying part though is the video. They are mentioning one tool that is not in the kit and on the first fly they have you tie, they are adding weight to the fly with materials not included in the kit. I am eager to learn, even with poor quality tools so that I understand and appreciate what a better tool can do for you. But, if you are going to include a DVD on fly tying at least include all the materials used in the video.
Trout Hunting, The Trout Hunter…
I don’t understand why the other buyers had such bad reviews for this product. I have already tied a number of flies with it and the tools are great. Fly tieing is an ART!!! and not for the heavy handed or the lets get it done now. This product does everything it says it will do. It has enough product to get you started and more. I can find nothing wrong with this product… Thank you … There are other kits out there but you will pay more for them and some of them are not as nice as this one. Good Trout Hunting.
I contacted by e-mail provoded about the missing instruction book listed in the cintents and they never contacted me back
Instructional DVD not compatible for U.S. format DVD players
The kit is ok as far as items included and for my son to learn fly tying. One big disappointment was that when we tried to watch the included instructional DVD, we couldn’t. I think that the disc is formatted for a different region (China perhaps? saw chinese characters on the disc’s inner rim) and won’t play on our DVD player.
