As I was perusing the new Tyee Tackle store here in Courtenay I was approached by one of the sales staff. Told him I was new tyer and just checking things out. He asked if I took lessons and then laughed when I told him I learned everything I know from youtube and the library, LOL.

He has a get-together at his house every Monday and invited me to join :thumbup: Unfortunately I couldn't go tonight but you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be pounding on his door next Monday :beerchug: Now I have an excuse to buy more stuff.

There are a few basic skills that are absolutely cruicial to master for tying. Aside from those skills (ie. the pinch, whip finish, etc.), another important thing to learn is to have an eye for proportion when tying your flies.

If you practice, I don't have any doubts that you would do well watching Youtube videos. :) But having someone there live does help a lot in terms of feedback on your final product though...so yes, always worth it to take lessons if you don't have buddies living close by to tie with. :beerchug:
