Classic Video: The Art of Fly Tying, Episode 1


Almost every Wednesday, we feature a fly-tying video from Tightline Productions, and I usually make it a point to mention that they’re the best in the business. But that was before blog reader Jim Paden pointed me to this incredible video from Samuel Johnson of the Inspirations Art Channel, starring a phenomenal fly tier named Stan Lowe. Stan twists up a rather incredible pike fly, and teaches you a lot about glue. I don’t know how I’m going to break the news to Tim Flagler.

Warning I: Some NSFW language.
Warning II: Kids, don’t try this at home.

  1. This is a work of genius. I have watched it every day since it was posted. It actually gets funnier every time.

  2. Since Stan is wearing a Ducks Unlimited shirt I assume he might be a hunter. If so, I hope he doesn’t load his own shotgun shells.
