Fly Tying Videos

Fly Tying Videos

 

I started tying "Intruder" type flies almost 15 years ago, after getting a peek into Mike McCune's fly boxes. After playing around with the concept for a while, I came up with the Dirk Wiggler. The Deuce Wigalo was my next creation. Both flies are fairly easy to tie and embody the characteristics we want in a big fly: profile and movement without bulk. The Intruder video is an example of what I call "invent a fly". You do that by taking five minutes to visualize your pattern and execute it. I did just that in this video, tying a fly on an "Intruder" platform, so to speak. The last three (Spider Monkey, AFS Intruder, and Skinny Classic) are variations of the Intruder tied from the materials in the AFS Intruder Tying Kit and serve as your instruction for the kit. Enjoy!
