That said, it's getting colder, the urge to tie more has grown, and I need to re-stock my materials. I've pretty much used up all of the good stuff that came in my kit at this point.
My short list would be more options (colors) in thread, some wire, foam and leg material for hoppers, perhaps some brass or tungsten beads for nymph heads (my kit only came with glass beads), of course some hooks...I mean the list could really go on and on, I didn't even mention feathers and fur.
Sure, this is a loaded question, but knowing I like to fish smaller dries, wets, and nymphs, are there any "must haves" that any of my fly tying readers might suggest? Brands of hooks, types of thread, etc, etc... I'm open and eagerly welcome all suggestions in the comments below.
