Bruce shares some incredible techniques in this one, such as burning wings, splitting mayfly tails, taming thread, and tying thorax patterns. There's lots of great stuff going on in this video, and we are positive you will learn some new techniques from it!

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.
