Fly Tying Videos & the Best of YouTube

The World Wide Web and fly tying were made for each other. The marriage between close-up video and the needs of fly tiers have produced a revolution in fly tying instruction.

What would fly tying be like today without the power and reach of search engines,, embedded web site videos, Web pages and portals about flies, recipes and techniques?

In celebration, Fly Foundry will strive to make available the Best of YouTube fly tying videos and to recognize the fly tying artists who create them.

If you have a nominee for a great fly tying video, please submit the link using the Submit Comment form at the top right of this page. Time permitting, we will consider the entry for a spot in the Fly Foundry reference archives. Thank you.
