Patrick's helped me years ago to learn how to tie a fly the correct way. And here is the good part we did this mostly by mail , then a guy namede Jim I think sent me a copy of Pacific Northwest Fly Patterns , By Roy Patrick. This is an in valuable book to teach a beginer, and the old guy as well. I was also an avid fan of fly tier magizine. I hooked some good fish on the Kalama river on flies and a few chum salmon. Okay , I know this shop knows how to connect you to fish .
