Good starter kit
Reviewer: A viewer from MARYSVILLE, WA USA
Great starter kit for the beginner or casual fly tier. Scissors work great and are able to snip the smallest pieces of material with precision. Hair stacker works good. Hackle pliers are ok, but not the greatest. Material slips out with too much tension and can be frustrating at times, but do work good if your careful. Bodkin is great and bobbin threader work great and so does the whip finish tool. Bobbin works ok, but doesn't hold the spool as tight as I think it should. Tough to get the spool on, but I think it's the material that is holding the spool is so slick that the spool of thread just slips easily. Other then that, it works great and never broken a thread. The foam insert cutout is not the right shape of the whip finish tool. How can you mess that up? No idea, but for the price paid for the kit, it should be a perfect fit.. Overall it's a good buy and I'm happy with it for the most part. If you want something better, well, you pay twice as much just like most other products out there.
Great Starting Set!

I found this kit (brass) to be excellent to help get me started with fly tying. I did purchase a few extra tools, but this kit, which is perfect as a gift as well gives you the basics to really get you started.
Great set of tools at a great price!

I recently took up fly tying and needed a good set of tools. After doing a lot of research, I found that the Dr. Slick tools are the best to get. This set has all the basic tools to get you started. You will be able to start tying flies right away. Or give as a gift to a fly fisher. They will be delighted. The company is great to work with. Sends the products right away. Highly recommend!
Great set for novice tiers
Reviewer: A viewer from Steamboat Springs, CO US
I was really impressed by the quality of the Dr. Slick gift set. The tools are easy to use and durable. I made a tool caddy from a block of wood to really complete the set. I've been tying for three months and am absolutely hooked.
