Fly Tying and Fly Fishing are two very different things. Fly Tying is used in combination with Fly Fishing. Below I will explain the difference between the two.
What is Fly Tying all about?
When you tie an artificial fly to your fishing line, it is considered Fly Tying. For someone that is new to Flying Tying, it might not sound all that hard, but it does require a bit of expertise to get it just right. The right kind of fly tying with the right kind of fly fishing method can do wonders for what you may catch while fishing the fresh waters or salt water seas.
If you are online much, the methods I described in the above paragraph can be found within the many videos and books throughout the internet. If you apply yourself and take the time to practice, you can get pretty good with just the free videos and article information that can be found online. Yet if you really want to become good at it, you will need to spend a little money and invest on reference books a videos that can take you more into depth on the subject.
How About Fly Fishing? What is this all about?
The art of Fly Fishing goes way back. It is an ancient angling form in which you uses various artificial flies with a unique rod made for the sport and special fly fishing line to fish both fresh and salt water.
You can find fly fishers in almost any kind or water. The norm for fresh water fly fishing usually falls into these categories,
- Cold Water Fresh Water Fishing (“Fresh Water Trout also known as River Trout”, Salmon or Steelhead).
- Cool Water Fresh Water Fishing (Pike, Perch or Walleye).
- Warm Water Fresh Water Fishing (Bass, Chub or Catfish).
Depending on the lake or river you fish, the techniques will all be different.
If you looking for a single way to fish the water as a fly fisher, you may be a bit disappointed. There is no one way to do it. Experts from all over the world have their unique techniques. If you follow one expert over another, that is OK. In time you will develop your own unique technique that will work for you. At that time you will become your own expert and may teach others your methods.
For beginners it does take time to learn. The trial through failure method works the best. Not only is it fun, but the more you do it the less failures you will have and more success you will find in each outing.
If you are learning more than one method at one time, only focus on that one method for the entire day. It is really important not to jump all over the place. Even if that method is not working for you and you are not catching anything, you will still become more familiar with the method and soon perfect it. The next time you are out, try another method. Soon you will start to become comfortable and understand what method works best for you. This works best for both your fly tying methods and fly fishing methods.

fly tying materials?
I do not have a fly shop near me and I do not want to order fly tying materials on the internet (because of shipping costs). I still need to buy dubbing and white, brown, and orange hair however. Are there any other places to buy this stuff. Can I buy them at walmart or target or any other department store?
Wal-mart will have a VERY limited supply if any and target just doesn’t carry that kind of stuff. Look on the internet for fly retailers along with your state and city and see what comes up. Other than that, it’s either pay the shipping, or go hunting. You might want to try Yahoo Local and see if anything comes up under fishing.
