    I myself have no experience tying and have just started to fly fish but I found a site the other day that might help you.It's got step by step diagrams on basic tying methods and is tie-1-on.net/ Hope it might help.

    Streamers are fairly quick and easy to tie, even if your new to the vice. Materials are basic, but they do not last too well for offshore species and especially for those who are toothy.

    Better to use a flashy profile or minnow profile instead which have a bit more life in them.

    I can show you how to tie the latter - in our own pattern - if interested, especially if you want a baitfish profile fly that can be scented.

    G'day Brett

    Yep I am in Brisbane. Ph: 3311 5262. Feel free to give me a call during business hours and arrange a time to drop in. I am at Wilston. No need to bring anything.

    After that, if you want to go on and learn other patterns then I will refer you on to colleague of mine.
