Doug McKnight ties a Slingblade Spoonfly by The Weekly Fly

Doug McKnight: Slingblade Spoonfly fly tying video tutorial

Doug puts the weight on in this heave multi-purpose fly.
Livingston tier and guide Doug McKnight hails originally from Pensylvania, but now lives in Livingston, MT. Doug began tying flies at age 9 under his father’s instruction along with a few instructional books. In 2003, Umpqua Feather Merchants signed him up as a signature fly tyer, and you can buy his unique fly patterns in fly shops around the world. In 2010, Fly Fisherman Magazine published a streamer- tying article written by Doug that was very well received. He continues to write for regional and national publications. Doug McKnight, in recent years, has been working on his fine art of oil paintings, pastels and pen and pencil drawings. Doug’s art is carefully rendered and his meticulous nature lends itself towards recreating beautiful and accurate images with an emphasis on the angler’s world.

Doug works at Yellow Dog Fly Fishing in addition to his personal creative work.

Epoxy Tips from Ian Collin James

Ian Collin James may have inhaled a few too many epoxy fumes, and so I guess he’s qualified to spread a bit of advise about the subject. If you ever have the chance to take one of his seminars, I highly recommend it. Anyway, he’s put together a nice list of tips for working with the epoxy. Take a look around his site as well, and have a read of some of his other material. At the very least, it will brighten your day, and you may pick up a thing or two.
