The aim of this blog is to connect fly-tyers all over the world, to share, techniques, patterns, information and knowledge.

Fly tying video tutorials

Its taken some time but I have just finished filming 15 fly tying tutorials, 7 on tying with deer hair. I decided to try and film the tutorials as seen by the tyer from behind the vice and give them a clean background, so as to showcase the techniques. Here are a few stills from the videos and as soon as the editing is finished I will start publishing them.

Due to the many enquires regarding the deer hair I used in these patterns heres the info: The hair is from Natures Spirit and is available from


100% Deer hair dry with summer roe deer tail, clipped deer hair body and spun deer hair hackle.

    Are the tutorials all trout flies, or do you cover bombers too?

    Absolutely superb!!!! I think that filming from the perspective of the tyer is far better than the usual technique of filming from the front, the viewer can see tutorial as though they were tying it. All instructional fly tying films should be done that way. I am really looking forward to seeing the finished article.
