Fly Tying Videos - Irish Fishing Flies

If you struggle learning wet flies, get his DVD - outstanding instruction. Dabblers can get very addictive to tie, and they are great caddis or green drake/brown drake wets for the Rocky mountain west
Watched the Red arse Dabble being tied. Not as nice as Stuart's but serviceable. Very cool techniques with the mallard wing /hackle. Reminiscent of spinning deer hair but obviously trickier. Great little insight there thanks for the link.
