You could also type in Chris Helm in the search engine.

Default RE: fly tying

after watchin Chris do it I picked it up quite fast (had been tying for a couple years before I humored it though). One thing, make sure nothing gets 'caught up' while you are spinning! I used 7 hooks on that one and fishing line secured to the hook in front of it starting with the farthes out leg. I spun them all then started trimming LOL. Chris showes you how to put spots where ya want, how to get the 2 toned effect top and bottom..he is a true master! Also I have a fella here named Guy Lee, kinda a unsung master but even more so a master from what I have seen! Like I said before he is doing fish with fins, dragons with wings and he seems to come up with something new every year! Watchin on that vid and seeing guys stuff really made it easy to understand and do. The trimming part...well no way around that one so get a good vacuum close by and be ready to hose yourself off before you go anywhere! best of luck...

thanx alot lil huntrer...i will let ya kno how i do...and when one is worthy of swimming i will tell ya wit eats it first....man i hope it is easier then it looks or none will hit the water...i will just make em to stare at! i kno i can only catch a few pan fish on one fly b4 it starts gettin tore up...im sure a bass hittin a deer hair bug on the top will mess it up for good...but i dont think nething can beat catching a nice fish on a fly you worked hard to make...thanx alot
