This is a most for any fly tier Review by Mogens

This video is one of the most instructive I have seen. In an easy-to-follow step by step fashion Don Bastian demonstrates a variety of techniques for tying classic wet flies. At the same time he gives a lot of tips for preparing the different materials and for generally making tying wet flies easier. Just seeing Don at work is a great inspiration. The video is a most for anyone who wants to tie, not only wet flies, but any type of fly pattern and on top of this tremendous value for money. (Posted on 11/9/11)

Don Bastian is a supreme flytyer who defines quality in wet fly tying. Period!
He teaches in his video at a pace that can be understood and he goes into the "small" details that make the difference in a tied fly and a very well tied fly. Buy it and if you get the chance to see Don tie at a fly show anywhere in your area: Go! He is the real mcCoy! (Posted on 12/21/10)

Details

Devoted exclusively wet fly patterns & techniques. Demonstrates detailed techniques for tying quill, flank, married, & mixed wing wet flies with a variety of body materials on 8 patterns. 112 min. More Information: Traditional wet flies ruled the waters for most of fly-fishing history. At one time, the sale of classic wet fly patterns dominated the sale of trout flies by all of the fishing tackle firms in the United States. In early America, these patterns were exclusively used for Brook Trout & Grayling. Wet flies were later effectively used to catch Brown & Rainbow trout. Classic wet fly patterns are still very effective, yet tying & fishing these beautiful patterns has fallen out of fashion. Tying Classic Wet Flies by Don Bastion is the first video exclusively devoted to these historic patterns & techniques. During one-hour & 52 minutes running time, Don Bastion demonstrates detailed techniques for tying quill, flank, married, and mixed wing wet flies with a variety of body materials on the following 8 patterns: * Gray Hackle Peacock * Cahill * Yellow Sally * Rich Widow * Cupsuptic * Trout Fin * Parmachene Belle * Professor ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Don Bastion has 40 years of fly tying. The book Forgotten Flies (2000) Published by Complete Sportsman features Don's impeccable reproduction of 499 wet-fly patterns reproduced from the recipes of Trout (1938) and other books by Ray Bergman.
