Global FlyFisher Videos - By Martin Joergensen 5000 videos! In December 2013 the video section crossed the 5000 video mark, and I wrote an article to celebrate it and added a couple of graphs to show some details about these many videos and the 18 million times they were viewed. OK, we know... it's not totally original, but since every other site out there seems to have a video page, we decided to have one too. After all, our user's image gallery has been a huge success, so why not a video gallery? So, what we essentially do is gather the best fishing videos from all the different sources on the web. We don't host them, we just embed them and link to them, so this is really kind of an index. But that can be OK too, can't it? It's also a desperate measure to get some content to the site. We've been all too busy this year with tonnes other things than publishing on GFF... but that's a whole other story. For now we invite you to add fishing videos to this new part of the site. We'll review them as we do with all user submitted contributions. It filters out the worst spam. You can read more about the video service in this article, something about videos in "The new breed" and see our content tagged with "video" here. Notice on ownership and copyright: Almost all the videos that are featured on this site are not produced by us. We embed other people's videos from external sources like Vimeo and YouTube. The videos are produced and owned by others and all we do is collect them and display them. We do not claim ownership in anyway and all rights belong to the originators, to whom we are grateful for allowing us to display their work. If you have produced interesting fly-tying or fly-fishing videos that we haven't picked up, feel free to submit them. If we on the other hand host some of your videos against your will, simply let me know, and I will take them down immediately. If you are a video provider who doesn't want your work shared through channels like this, simply turn off embedding and/or sharing in the configuration of your video. Then we are technically kept from using them, and we do of course respect that decision. If you have questions or comments, please write me. Martin - fly fishing video channel - Global FlyFisher

Gary,

There should be absolutely no problems in showing the videos in a fly tying club or guild as long as you don't charge money to do it - like a cinema show. Screening online videos - and DVDs for that matter - to a select group of member under private circumstances breaks no laws. So you just go ahead. It's a great idea by the way and a very good way of introducing patterns and tying steps to people.

Evening Martin,
My name is Gary and reside in Port Elizabeth South Africa. Have just started a fly tying Guild and am a keen follower of Davie's clips. My question is as follows. During our Guild meetings may we download,watch and then tie the applicable pattern? No funds of any sort are generated from such viewing but as Chairman of the Guild I do not which to infringe on any of Davie's copyrite material. Your advice on this will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards
Gary

Hi, my name is Charles, and I would like some help in finding a fly-tyer from Japan who ties a floating Minnow, similar to the Iwai minnow but with a longer body, it is made from mylar in blue and also green and filled with poly ethylene. If someone has a link to Japanese fly-tyer or photos of floating minnows I would love to hear from you.

Hi my name is Charles, and I would like some help in finding a flytyer from Japan who ties a floating Minnow similar to the Iwai minnow but a larger body, it is mylar in blue and also geen and is filled with poly ethylene. If someone has a link to tying flies or photos of floating minnows I would love to hear from them.

John,

That certainly depends on what video(s) you are referring to... if it's the ones that I have made, I'm using a Waldron vise, which is no longer available on the market. You can find them used, but they are pretty expensive.

Hello
I have been watching some of your fly tying videos and I would like to know what is the brand of fly tying vise you are using. It seems quite unique and great for small dry flies. If you could send me information on where I might buy this vise I would be greateful.
