6 Best Flying Tying Kits in 2022 – Buyer’s Guide

A fly tying kit can be a great way to start tying your own flies. We’ll show you what to pay attention to.

Fly tying kits make it easy if you are new to fly tying as they include all the gear you need to tie your first fly. Before making a purchase though, you think about what kind of flies you plan on tying. Is your focus going to be on classic trout flies, streamers for pike or bass, or maybe even on big saltwater flies?

A fly tying kit is not only for the beginner though. It can also come in handy for more experienced fly tiers. For example, when you want to tie flies on the go on a trip, a kit with all the “ingredients” is a good way to make sure you don’t forget any essentials.
