Video: An Artistic Look at the Black Ghost

Black Ghost Fly from Mathias Deming on Vimeo.

We feature a lot of “how-to” fly-tying videos—we’ll have another great one from Tightline Productions tomorrow—but here’s a perspective on the aesthetics of attaching fur and feathers to a hook. Filmmaker Mathias Deming shoots the creation of a Marabou Black Ghost as an artistic process in itself. So focused is he one the creative nature of tying itself that he chooses not to show us the finished fly. So enjoy the beauty of sitting at the vise, rather than the product of that time.
