    This is pretty incredible. I can’t imagine a trout turning that thing down during a caddis hatch. Just no casting this thing on streams with overhanging bushes I guess.

    Wonderful fly. Too bad about the poor choice of music. I take exception to the MF word while I am tying flies.

    Vert clever method. I will have to give it a try. I will most likly listen to soft rock or classical music while doing so. To each his own. LOL

    Similar to Jerry and Joe, I have yet to meet a flyfisherman-tyer that can tolerate that kind of music while tying, fishing or laying drunk in a gutter somewhere. Which is where I assume you got those tunes.

    It would be great if the video was judged for its amazing ability in tying flies rather than an individual’s choice in music. Personally I enjoy a range of music while tying… if you don’t, there is volume control.

    Nice fly but next time I watch, the volume will match the rating….. Zero.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    I listen to all kinds of music as well as enjoy tying all kinds of flies. One big problem with this video was that it’s 12 minutes long and it’s pretty hard to find music to suit that. If you don’t like the music just mute the video and listen to whatever makes you happy.

    I have to agree with the comments of Jerry W French. It’s a great looking fly and very well tied but the music was horrible.
