What books and videos have improved your fly tying the most?
A.K. Best's Production Flytying
Jack Dennis Western Trout Fly Tying Manual
really helped me with tying Hummpies when i 1st started.
This is a good one:
I have always like the skip morris tying books...good pics, explanations and good foundation....Spey and Dee flies by John Shewey has had a big impact on my steelheading ties...
Davie McPhail on youtube. Learned a few things I didn't already know from Hans Weillenman videos too. Books? I have so many. And learned virtually nothing from any of them.
Fly Tying Expos...
Reedsport, OR (Feb.)
Albany, OR (Mar.)
Glide, OR (Sept.)
Portland, OR (formerly Troutdale, OR) (Nov.)
They supplements the books and videos nicely... of which I have too many to name.
Lessons with a good teacher makes me better. Books and videos provide no feedback
Davie McPhail videos on u-tube. Seek out the older videos where he did a bit more explanation of material use, choice and application. His more current videos are also excellent.
+1 for davie that guy explains a lot fI you listen. You gives little tips here and there that are very helpful.
I can't say enough about the high resolution photography and Charlie's exhaustive step by step instructions for beginning fly tyers.
"The Fly Tier's Benchside Reference" . It's almost all there. No fly tier should leave home without it.
