White River Fly Shop® Fly Tying Kit - Jig Tying
This kit will get you started
I bought this kit because I'd always to tie my own jigs. The kit provides everything needed to get started and an instructional DVD. The DVD is outdated but still useful.

Nice Kit, but No Jig Paint
When shopping this item, there is no written inventory of all the items included in the kit, but rather a picture of the contents of the kit which is more difficult to review and interpret. Although the general description of the product includes the words "includes everything you need" to learn how to tie your own jigs (including an assortment of unpainted jigs) but there is no jig paint. That seems to run counter to the "everything" claim. Now there is no paint pictured in the display of the product, so probably my own fault for not noticing that, but just a note saying "jig paint not included" would have eliminated my need for a later additional purchase to get the jig paint necessary to make the kit complete. Other than the missing jig paint, the kit does have an assortment of other interesting materials and tools that should prove fun to use. I bought the kit as a present for my 12 year old grandson, so I don't feel I can give it to him without the jig paint - which I now need to buy from a store because of the timing and that kind of defeats the original online shopping advantage.

Good starter kit
My uncle recommended this as a starter kit and he was on the money. Everything you need to start practicing is included and the DVD shows the techniques to begin tying jigs. There are plenty of materials to practice with but understand at some point you will want to buy the materials you'd like to make your own jigs with.

Jig Tying Kit
I personally think it is a great product because it gives you a lot of materials, all the equipment you need(excluding a desk), and a instuctional video on how to tie popular jig patterns. Even though the cost was a little high, it was worth it,and you can make jigs that fish have never seen before, which is a huge advantage.
