If you’re new to fly tying, there are a few basic fly tying tools you’ll need to get started. Here are the essential fly tying tools you’ll need to tie your own flies.

Fly Tying Vise


The first fly tying tool you’ll need is a fly tying vise. The fly tying vise is the tool that holds the hook in place while you tie your fly. There are a few different types of fly tying vises, but the most common are the rotating vise and the stationary vise.


Bobbin


The bobbin is the fly tying tool that holds your thread. It’s used to wrap thread around the hook and to hold materials in place while you tie your fly. A good bobbin will have a ceramic tube that allows the thread to move smoothly.


Hackle Pliers

Hackle pliers are used to hold feathers, fur, and other materials in place while you tie them onto the hook. A good set of hackle pliers will have a small rubber tubing that holds materials in place without damaging them.

Scissors

A good pair of fly tying scissors is an essential fly tying tool. You’ll need them to cut thread, wire, tinsel, and other materials. A pair of scissors with a fine point is essential for cutting materials close to the hook without damaging your fly.

Bodkin

A bodkin is a small needle-like tool that’s used to apply cement, epoxy, and other adhesives to your fly. It’s also used to pick out materials and to apply head cement to finish your fly. A good bodkin will have a sharp point and a comfortable handle.

Whip Finish Tool

The whip finish tool is the last fly tying tool you’ll need to finish off your fly. It’s used to tie a whip finish knot, which is a knot that secures the thread to the hook. A whip finish tool makes it easy to tie a whip finish knot, even if you’re new to fly tying.

At Rocky Mountain Fly Shop, we carry all the fly tying tools you need to start tying your own flies. Shop our selection of fly tying tools today and get started on your fly tying journey.
