Fly Tying for Dummies

What follows is my first attempt at a fly tying video. I mostly just wanted to see how this would turn out and I'm generally pretty happy with the results. I decided to spare everyone my commentary and set the video to music instead. As witty and insightful as I'm sure it would have been, I think the tunes are more enjoyable. I picked an effective streamer pattern that can be tied in an endless array of color combos and is quick and easy to tie. Let me know what you think.


  1. jeeze! if that is your first attempt i can't wait to see what the next will be like! well done! looks like a nice pattern for bass and trout.

  2. Recently discovered your site (via small stream reflections). Terrific photos and content. all this blog stuff is new to me. Is there a way to communicate directly? I live in Rhode Island and would like to share some things with you.


  3. Thanks Tom. I was pretty happy for a first attempt. I might try to do one every month. Not that my tying skills are that great, but it's fun to do.

    Paul, feel free to drop me an email at
