    i just started tying bombers and the spun deer hair creations... They didnt look good at the start but they were pretty easy to get the hang of... I am going to try ot find the websites that helped me out and post them up for you.

    Well, I normally spin bombers and muddlers, but stack waller wakers. I've done a waker tutorial, PM/email me and I'll send you the link to it.

    I would highly reccomend any videos with Dave Whitlock, he is a master at spinning and stacking and the videos are very very well done.

    There are a few videos out there that a good ones. I got one and I loaned it out but I haven't seen the guy :( I loaned it to in about 10 months. I think it is called Tying With Hair or Tying With Deer Hair by Chris Helm. It also shows six different flies and how to tie them. Good Video.
