There's more than 6,500 videos on our video channel and claiming "that half of these videos are really commercials in disguise" is a pretty bold statement.

Sure some are commercials. These videos are brought to you for free, and some of the producers need more than intellectual satisfaction to motivate them. Doing commercials or having sponsors are way this can work.

But in disguise...? I don't think so. Most of the commercial ones are pretty obvious endorsements, and don't try to hide the fact. On the contrary. That's the whole idea. And also: I screen every single of the videos that come online here, and I do not tolerate blatant commercials with no valuable content. I do accept some advertising if the video is good, but the channel is not a poster board for ads.

So if you find this almost endless stream of free content too commercial for your taste, simply don't watch them.

Why does it seem that half of these videos are really commercials in disguise?

To N: I have never posted a video either, but Panasonic, JVC, Sony all make affordable video cameras that would likely suffice for what you want to do. To chose, you would have to answer if you want to save/store your video internally on a hard drive (Panasonic) or on a memory card (Sony, JVC, Panasonic). You can get a good camera from any of these three companies for around $300.00 USD, at least I did (Panasonic).

There was a small technical problem, and the video pages should now be updated as usual.
Thanks for noticing.

I have been tying for more years then I care to remember. I have to say, I have learned many many new patterns, and a lot of tricks of tying on this site. Thanks.

It just doesn't get much better than this, and saying thank you just doesn't say enough

We screen every single comment, and only publish those that are suitable for publishing. Some might have a rougher tone than others, but all are clean enough to be seen. We do get inappropriate comments, but they never find their way out on the site.

This is a great site, one I visit daily and have taken techniques from and incorporated into my own tying. One suggestion, however: for tying videos NOT in english, how about posting the recipe or pattern materials in english somewhere in the video description. For example, Mr. Giancarlo from Italy ties some remarkable flies that I would like to try, but not knowing the materials used hinders me, and others I suspect. I don't understand a word he says, and while I could approximate his efforts, it would be nice to know the exact ingredients. Just look at the instructions to comment on this page: Only in English..Just a thought.

This song was chosen for the melody, not the lyrics that I do not understand.
I use an online translator to answer, because my knowledge of English is too low.
If this soundtrack has shocked some I'm really sorry.

I honestly didn't notice anything about the soundtrack for this fly-tying video before you mentioned it, and still don't see the problem - or hear it. Sure I heard the F-word, and it might be worse than that if I listen really carefully... but I don't.
I usually run these videos on low volume, and don't decipher the lyrics. The fly-tying is nice, and that's fine enough for us - classy or not.

But thanks for your concern!

Totally inappropriate sound track on "La Poitou". I'm amazed you allowed it. No place for it on a site as classy as yours.
