Many materials used in these innovative flies are not necessarily found on a fly shop so think out of the box and enjoy being creative... The tying techniques and materials are the most important information you will find in this DVD...Learn and apply them and soon you'll be innovating your tired patterns into some imitations that will give you unforgettable times out on the water...
