Tying videos...

Hi Davie;
I Have been watching your video's and learning alot of techniques....your explanations of doing certain things during the video's is valuable info. to the novice tyer like myself. Although you make it look so effortlessly I know it takes years of practice and learning with all the new materials coming out in the market.I just wanted to let you know how much you have made my tying easier and resulted in a much cleaner and well formed flies, undoubtedly you been told by other tyers that you are considered the best among the rest....and I totally agree with that assumption....your dedication to the art form of fly-tying..and in helping others thru your video's and personnel appearances can only lead to recognizing you as the... "best of the best"....once again thank you for making me a better tyer each time at the vice....
Best Regards;

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.
