Looking for some Fly tying material!

Post by malonetime » Tue Mar 26, 2019 9:05 am

Hello all! I have just relocated my whole life from Canada and arrived here in NZ about a month ago. All i had room for in my suit cases was my fly tying vice and tools. As you can imagine, money is a little tight at the moment because I am job hunting etc... Flys are expensive and so it tying material. I know how much material a guy can accumulate in his bench so i figured i would just put this post out there. Would any of you be willing to part with some basic tying materials to get me going? I am located in ChCh. Let me know!!

P.S. If anyone wants to go fishing let me know. I'd love to learn from anyone who is willing to give me some advice on fishing the south island.

Enjoy some picture from back home in Canada

I can help with some possum fur, and peacock feathers so PM me.

Have you thought about joining a fishing club? There are several in Christchurch, some aimed just at fly fishing, others at the whole spectrum of fishing types. Here's the shameless plug for the one I am associated with: https://canterburyanglersclub.org.nz/. Three great lodges not far from Christchurch close by good fishing spots - and I can personally vouch for all 3.
