Frequently Asked Questions
The beginner box is the best place to start for a tier just getting into the tying world. Smitty makes sure to keep the beginner box simple, full of material, and pick fish catching flies.
The intermediate box is just one step up from the beginner. Slightly more advanced. Both the beginner and intermediate boxes recieve tons of material. There is not a quantity or quality change between the two, only the skill level.
Fly boxes are where you can tell us what flies you like to use and where you fish so that we can send you a hand-picked dozen flies to match your fishing.
The best value box are the combo boxes. You can combine the fly box and tying boxes all in one or choose both the tying boxes together! It is overflowing with material and has both levels of fly tying.
A newspaper is sent every month inside your box with step by step intructions on how to tie the fly. A video is also posted onto our website under the videos menu as well as on our YouTube channel with more in depth detail about how to tie each fly.
We shoot for 25 flies per box. Depending on the month and the pattern the amount may slightly vary. With simple patterns you will be able to tie 24-25 and have plenty of material left over. With big articulated streamers and larger patterns we may lower the amount to a guaranteed 12 with extra material. Our goal is to always give you extra so that you can tie more than the quantity suggests.

I'd say pretty damn good. I won't send you any BS. All flies are tied on Daiichi hooks using Whiting Farms hackle. Each box is personally checked by me. We take a lot of time to pick the right flies for you based on the information you give us.
