So I am new to fly fishing(very new) and received a new fly tying starter kit for Christmas. I am posting to ask help and advice. I was wondering first off what, if any, books or dvd's you people would recommend for fly tying. Also, which flies I should concentrate on for alaskan fly fishing. I mainly plan on trout fishing in the rivers (north and south) and lake fishing throughout the state. What are the alaskan "go to's"? Dry, Nymphs, Flesh, Leaches, etc... My main goal of the 2011 spring/summer is to familiarize myself with the upper and middle Kenai by walking in. Maybe some of the Streams and rivers of the north too. Willow, Montana, Susitna, etc... I really appreciate any help anyone could give me. Thanks everyone! Happy fishing.
