Fly Tying

Worst advice you could give

Recommended Posts

Just making stuff up, now?

If that's the case ... "Take a kid fishing?" would be terrible advice.  Who needs more people fishing my favorite waters?

How about "You'll save money making your own bamboo fly rods..." Just buying my planing forms, this isn't a money saving venture ;)

HA! Just borrowed a router to make another set of roughing forms. Now THOSE are easy, but planing forms? Not even gonna try it, because I know I won't let go of a project and will try until my heart gives out, I spend more than 3 times the price of a professional set, and actually have it done.

Dont put things away, you'll need to have supplies out in case you want to tie that pattern later.

The worst advice would be to say “... there is no need to read tying books or journals, one can learn everything one needs to know from YouTube...”

Well I mean that's what I did. Not the best way but it works.

Agreed, but it is not a very efficient method.  Compare the amount of material one can read and absorb in 1 minute, vis-a-vis watching video for same...

Different strokes I suppose, flat rock. I first tied with Lefty's DVD and later with youtube when I picked it up. I read too, but for a new technique I like to see it be done.

Absolutely.    Everyone learns in different ways.  Seeing and hearing a subject presented simultaneously, as studies show, provide a powerful learning and memory link.  For me, it would be wrong to advise someone to exclude any form of media, or exclusively, exalt any single source....

And for my time there is an awful lot of winding of the thread, even in the best done videos...

And, you haven’t learned “everything” just yet.... though you are well on the way...

ExtraSome more free materials up for grabs under Mark Knapp’s postings for juniors and vets...
