The Angler’s Net The Essence of Fly Fishing contest is now in the voting stage. There are 3 categories to vote in, Favorite Adventure Journal, Favorite Fly Tying Video and Favorite Fly Fishing Video. I entered a video into the fly tying portion of the contest. I’m up against Alex from The Day Tripper Blog. My Elk Hair vs his Butt Monkey. I’m not asking you to vote for me, but just to vote.

Not on YouTube, and that means you won’t run into any Nuc-Lee-Air type fly tying demos. Nushranger and Shaq have built themselves a nice little database of fly tying and fly fishing videos. The site allows users to upload their own video as well. The site also has some other features, but the videos are what really makes the site sticky. Don’t know how to make a video?
