This isn’t exactly a tutorial, but it does quick work of a fly which take quite a while to tie. It’s a beautiful black and blue intruder, loosely based around a Ward’s Intruder style fly. I really love the photography of the video and the included shots of the fly swimming.

I’ve given the Nor-vise a whirl before, but it didn’t really fit me so well. Like anything, you have to give it a try to see if it is for you, and after seeing this video, I will need to revisit it. I do a lot of production tying, but most of the patterns I tie don’t really require the spinning the Norvise offers, but there are a few places it would really come in handy. This ESL is really sweet, and the techniques shown look incredible. So, for this is for all the Norvise fans and those thinking about one. I love the ingenuity Norm shows with the dubbing brush set-up, now that would be handy to have. Enjoy.
