I had an order for these two Gamechanger flies and figured I would bring you all along with me while I tie them. Many people have requested for more detailed videos on these game changers so I hope this helps. Gamechanger flies are not quick to tie, and therefor this video is very very long. In fact I think it is my longest video Ive made. So I will put in some sections for the video so you can jump to where you want explanation for that specific part. You want to learn how to trim? Then you can jump to the trimming section of the video. Put on the eyes? Then jump to the eye section, etc.

There are many different ways to tie Gamechangers. I like tying the feathered gamechangers, and then these Im tying today. Feathered game changers flow really well in the water and have great movement however the chenille style changers are way more durable and can mimic specific baitfish more perfectly if you know how to color them. If you have any questions I will do my best to answer in the about section below.

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.
