Illustrated Fly Tying Lessons

It’s an art form for many fishermen and an impossible task for many others. While patience and attention to detail are key components to becoming an efficient fly-tyer there’s no substitute for experience and the understanding of the local creepy crawlies that trout call dinner.

Whether they are graceful winged emergence just beginning a new life or a nymph scuttling along the surface they attract the attention of the hungry trout below. These lessons will give you plenty of ideas, knowledge, and most of all a basic benchmark to learn from and strive towards in your quest to learn to tie your own flies.

    This is my new home away from home. I’m a long time fly fisherman but a brand new baby when it comes to tying flies. This will help out a lot and there’s no guesswork. Cool and Thanks.
