NEW HOOKED ON FLY TYING TITLES & RECIPES

24 new titles recorded in digital widescreen High Definition format by the worlds premier fly tying program producers Jim & Kelly Watt, these programs are educational/instructional DVDs designed for all levels of fly tyers.

The techniques demonstrated in this program are peculiar to tying the Biot Series. These techniques are based on a solid understanding of the history of the techniques and use of materials handed down over the years.
