White River Fly Shop® Fly Tying Kit - Bass Tying
This will get you up and set in no time. The vice is not a $400 unit but it works great and the video will show you everything you need to start.

THE VIDEO WAS WELL PUT TOGETHER AND MADE IT EASY TO LEARN TO TIE. I WOULD RATHER HAVE PAID A LITTLE MORE FOR A BETTER VISE. OVERALL, IT IS GOOD FOR THOSE WHO DON'T WANT TO SPEND ALOT OF $ UNTIL THEY KNOW IF THEY ARE GOING TO ENJOY IT.

When I read the other reviews before ordering, I accepted the faults they listed.
I am happy to say that all of the issues previously noted appear to be fixed- my kit was on back order and the one I received has the DVD, not a VHS and all of the materials are labeled just as shown in the pic. Also, the vise appears to be flimsy in the pic, but in reality the vise is very stout!
As someone else said, the video is worth the price alone and all in all I would have to say this is a great value for the money.
The one additional thing that I had to order was a whip finisher.

for a novice like myself, this kit is a good deal for the beginner fly tyer, there is a very informative DVD from Lefty.
The packages are clearly labeled. the tools supplied seem decent. You will need to have some pliers and nice file for the hooks, lefty mentions this in the DVD. I watched the DVD last night and plan on starting the fly tying this week.
