Tying fly fishing lures has always seemed like one of those ancient arts that very few people practice and that takes years to perfect. Well all of that is true but just because you’re not a master fly maker, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a try, especially if you are into fishing.

Here are some of the best resources we’ve found for tying flies and it looks like once you have your workstation setup you can start getting really creative.
