    I’d like to see some good video tutorials on things such as dubbing techniques, forward-angled palmer hackles, folded hackles. Also, tiny midge nymphs.

    • Hi Gary,
      I have plans to make more video tutorials but it wont be for a while yet. I will however be posting some tutorials that will cover some of the techniques you have listed.
      Thanks for following.

    Do you consider sea trout to aso be steelhead fish or do you classify them separately?

    • Hi Joseph, what we reffer to as sea trout are sea run brown trout that return each year to spawn in fresh water. Just like native American rainbows/steel head. But we fish for them not only in rivers but also from the coast in salt water.

  6. Barry,

    When you get the urge and opportunity, I would love to see a tutorial on soft-hackled wet flies. I know they are simple but I always find my biggest challenge is choosing the right feather and finding that balance between too much and too little hackle. I’d really be interested in you insights on all these things. Just a thought in case you are looking for tutorial subjects.

    Hi Barry,excellent work…I want to see some tube flies(easy & cheap,from cotton swabs ,because our fishes do not eat “caviar”,which is,in my opinion, a nordic enjoy) and articulated flies.I’m very interested in how to select materials for fly tying.Some photos or videos,if necessary,for 3-4 categories….GREAT;GOOD;ACCEPTABLE;NOT GOOD ENOUGH;WRONG,from time to time,will help me and others like me very much.In the first place,I will be glad to see very much about hare and rabbit.
