Here is a new video uploaded by Davie McPhail I just stumbled upon on You-Tube. He’s likely best known for his classic Atlantic Salmon flies, and I’m sure I’ll be sharing more of his ties in the future. So, here is one of his latest videos, sit back, relax and learn.
Here is another great video from Youtube. Here we have a classic Madam X, a pattern tied with a bullet head. This video is well done and has a few things going for it like the explanation and demonstration of using the bullet head tool and well, the vise is tops in my books. Another little tip I picked up was the application of the legs. It’s a bit different than I’ve seen but effective none the less. the barred rubber legs are another material I have been using more of this year for some of my larger dry patterns and my Bass flies as well.
Here is a nice spey style Matuka fly by Ontario guide Ken Chandler. I like the use of the rabbit as the back material, and I can see already a number of versions I could tie this up in. Olives, black, orange, purple, yum. The step by step tutorial is well done and easy to follow. If you happen to tie up a few, post em.
