WAPSI Deluxe Fly Tying Starter Kit




Product Description

Wapsi's goal was to design a kit that focused on giving the starter a positive experience the first time at the vise. To accomplish this goal, we wrote a straightforward book with clear, step-by-step instructions, using materials geared to tie modern fly patterns. They tested the kit by having several focus groups of beginners tie flies with the kits. Their comments and suggestions drove the entire project. 

The components of the kit

The focus groups taught us a great deal about writing an instructional fly tying book. We realized that the photographs and text had to be clear and easy to understand. The handbook teaches the fundamental techniques to tie any fly and gives detailed step-by-step instructions to tie 10 modern fly patterns.

  • Wooly Bugger
