    Tying Books on a Kindle

    I am new to tying and looking to advance my skills. Im looking to expand on my technique and the patterns that I can tie. I thought that picking up a few tying books may be helpful. Is it worth getting tying books on a kindle or is it just better to get the actual book? Any info would be appreciated.

    Re: Tying Books on a Kindle

    Good question, it all depends. If I am tying at home then I personally prefer books. If I am away on a trip or camping, then I would prefer a kindle in color. The reason for this, I feel it is very impracticle to take books with you on bussiness trips or pleasure trips. A kindle is simple and easy. Now let me throw one more monkey wrench into the mix, Where I go camping and fishing, good luck getting any kind of signal. I do use my laptop in my tying room a lot any more to post pictures or comment on threads just like this. So I feel the wise choice for me here is not to answer with a yes or no on this subject. It is an individual choice along with usage.

    Sincerely
    Andy Brasko

    if you download books into a kindle, why would a signal be needed? kindle is a storage device, just turn it on and read the book

    Re: Tying Books on a Kindle

    Youtube has a wealth of tying information on it. If you wish i can recommend several channels on there. But as far as books vs kindle. Which is better, well I would say neither is better than the other, and recommend that you get whatever can or want on the kindle and if you cant get it on the kindle then go with the book.

    Re: Tying Books on a Kindle

    As a 1-yr tyer, I would echo mbwmn's comment on live & in-person. It's incredible the techniques, tips, and tricks you can pick up from an experienced tyer. You also get immediate feedback, both during and after tying. For at home, I'd recommend "The Benchside Introduction to Fly Tying" by Ted Leeson & Jim Schollmeyer, a $45 book reference with LOTs of pictures. Welcome to the dark side... Tom

    Re: Tying Books on a Kindle

    I don't tie flies, but if i did i would want the book, and many books to use as reference manuals. The kindle is for romance novels, Fabio.

    Hell no and it aint over now.......

    Re: Tying Books on a Kindle

    With a book you will always have it.

    Unless you LOAN it out to someone and never see it again.

    Or your house catches fire.

    Or you loan it out.

    Or your sprinkler system in the house goes off and soaks it.

    Or you loan it out to a friend.

    Or you spill your bottle of head cement on it and welds it together.

    Or you loan it out.

    Or the book developes a bad case of mold.

    Or you loan it out to a friend.

    OR YOU LOAN IT OUT TO A FRIEND AND NEVER SEE IT EVER AGAIN.

    I prefer autographed copies.
