  1. This guy sounds sedated like he’s on something………the patterns are standard patterns, nothing special………….

    1. lol, sedated.

      I posted this for the nice video and a well tied pattern. Hopefully with some feedback the audio can improve a bit and the pattern selection gets a bit more adventurous.

    1. I’ve taped myself tying flies a few times before, and I always sound… sedated. Just concentrating on tying and speaking at the same time is enough to slow you down.
