Chris Helm tying at the International Fly Tyers Symposium in New Jersey in 1996.

Chris Helm is one of the world's premier capacities on tying with hair - especially deer hair. Chris has tied on numerous shows and classes all over the world and has taught people to tie deer hair flies both live, in books, and on videos.

I have always been fascinated by deer hair flies, especially muddlers, and my own big break through with these flies and deer hair came after tying with Chris Helm at an arrangment in Denmark. The material presented in his first article on this web site comes from that specific arrangement.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
