It's hard to beat Davie McPhail. Hans Weilenmann is also good. I enjoy the videos put out by Mak flies. Tightline videos are excellent. Phil Rowley has videos of many of his excellent stillwater patterns. There are tons of good tiers on Youtube. I wish I had this resource when I was learning.

The ones I like are the "produced" ones. That is, they are thought through and planned and scripted in advance of shooting and then edited afterward to eliminate all the redundancies and unnecessary rambling and tying activities. The list includes Hans Weilenman, Davie McPhail and Tightlines.  I really dislike the ones that were shot in someone's basement or the back room of the fly shop with dogs barking or people talking in the background and no one to operate the camera. I don't like the ones with loud/aggressive music tracks either. I will stop here...the list of dislikes seems to grow all the time.

The Weekly Fly has some good patterns but sometimes the video is not that great. I still like to go there and see what they have though!! :)

Far too often I find myself screaming at the laptop "WHY!" or "Can't you count!" when I watch videos on You Tube. The only videos I could point a beginner at and say "Tie like that" of all that I have watched of Hans Weilenmann. Others I have seen some are ok but others leave me wondering. Things like "Take 3 or 4 turns to form the head." (Not needed on an Orange Partridge) then the tier takes 12 turns. Really makes me wonder, then to hear it lauded as an excellent video?
 
There are many more videos out there than I could possibly watch. There may be others I would recommend, I haven't found them yet.
 
I've made a few videos. Before I start I always consider if, by doing that video, I am adding anything to what is out there. A new pattern or technique, something that hasn't been covered before. That is quite a tough test, and is part of the reason I haven't done many. I may do more, but personal circumstances are making it very difficult just now. I would like to have more equipment for doing them. Especially a camera that shows my view as I am tying.
 
Cheers,
C.


Have any links to the videos you have made?

I like Camiss' channel as well. If you're beginning fly tying, oysterboiler's channel is a good place to start.

Oliver Edwards should be in the mix IMO. The neat/minimalist quality of his tying desk is a constant rebuke to me.

I'd also add Barry Ord Clarke  to my favorite list. His innovations, economy of presentation, and attention to the details are way above average.

I'm a big fan of Dron Lee. He ties some of the coolest stuff around!
