Connemara Black Variant – Hans Weilenmann

A nice variant of the Connemara tied by Hans Weilenmann. I’ve been enjoying his videos over the past couple months and appreciate the frequency of the uploads. While I personally don’t add many of the patterns he demo’s, I do enjoy the detail in the videos and his precise tying nature. Many of his tips easily translate to other paterns I do stock in my box, and I’m a better fly tyer for it.
