Videos of fly tying notables

Recommended Posts

Occasionally a number of us post videos showing a well-known tying legend tying the fly or flies they are best known for. I thought it would be nice to have a thread dedicated just to that. Please keep side discussion and comments to a minimum here, just the name of the tyer, a link to the video, and maybe a few words on the tyer and the fly (preferably a link to an interview instead). Not about us, just about them. I'll start with an easy one.

Hans Weilenmann tying his CDC & Elk:

Warren Duncan ties a Rusty Rat c/w a Robert Service poem.   This is poor quality home video of a tv program.  For someone of Dunc's renown,  and having made hours of community cable shows, etc.  I'm surprised that more video is not available easily.

That's a great site for knots too.  There is a video showing how each knot is tied.

W.C. Stewart died before we had film (1872).  Oliver Edwards does a wonderful job here tying a traditional Stewart's Black Spider.  There's a lot of historical information about the old world materials and methods.
