Today i took a nice ride down to my local fly shop, The Complete Angler. I needed to purchase some materials allowing me to craft some basic aquatic insects. Scott, was very helpful in the shop and set me up with a hare's mask, thread, beads, hooks, and a few other items. The store has moved, but is still located in the same parking lot, on the Post Road in Darien, CT.
I want to say that the freshwater fly tying is a different animal than saltwater, and frankly i think it is a lot more difficult.
