Bobbin ?

Recommended Posts

When you get one, you'll decide yes it was necessary. I like a ceramic tube or flared end brass bobbin. Does not have to be expensive. I tie larger flies with 210 denier thread. Finer thread may require a better bobbin.

Yes they are a necessity.  You will end up with several bobbins.  I have some expensive bobbins with tension adjustments and ceramic tubes but I like the dirt cheap no frills the best.  They all are adjustable tension just by over flexing the legs apart or together to get the tension you want. Something like this will work fine for a lifetime of tying for under $10.   You can always get a couple more when you find the "got to have that" model.

Most of all have fun tying.

You will probably end up with a wide variety of bobbins as try different ones, I have a bunch with different colors and sizes of thread ready to go so I don't have to change and rethread a bobbin every time . And like Sharon Macomber said the level of satisfaction and your creativity is no limit . Have fun !!

Most fly anglers hit a point in their fishing career when they think about tying their own flies. My personal journey in tying began two years after I picked up a fly rod. To get  new level of satisfaction I recommend to choose it as topic for college. It's a cool helper https://edubirdie.com/mla-citation-generator for your different types of papers in form of citation generator. There’s an entirely new level of satisfaction from catching a fish on a fly you tied yourself.

Uh thanks guys, but incase you hadn't noticed this post was made in 2018. I bought a pretty big fly tying kit & made  a bunch of crappie & floatnfly jigs  last winter. :D
