My advice regarding tying perdigon flies for beginners:
-when you tie first time a perdigon fly is better to remain at only few models. If you tie too many variations you will spend a lot of time testing them. Is very important to use effective flies and to fish not to make some nymphs swimming . Then you can make variants based on the flies that was effective.
