We’re fortunate there are such great fly fishing bloggers out there, and Michael Nelson and Henry Harrison are no exceptions.Mike and Henry have been putting up a weekly fly-tying video for almost two years now – they just surpassed the 100 mark – and we are happy to announce that Fly Fisher Pro and the WeeklyFly are joining together to provide their videos on the Fly Fisher Pro site.
We created this separate section for the tyers out there and hope to provide more resources in the near future.We will soon be making available Mike and Henry’s DVDs (through their company, Reel Action Media).And, in the near future, we hope to provide you with subscription access to their wonderful fly-tying videos so you will be able to view them at any time you need a refresher.
Kieran Frye has been tying flies since 1981. He is an award winning tyer, including the 1994 Mustad Scandinavian Open held in Oslo, Norway. Many of Kieran's patterns were developed during his days afield in his home state of Pennsylvania.
This pattern is especially interesting because it was invented by his father.
