Let Fisheries Biologist and Professional Fly Fisherman Brian Chan show you his time tested methods that catch fish. We combine two very popular elements in this DVD. First we tie 11 flies that fish love and then we use those exact flies out on the lake and catch fish. Also, because Brian Chan is a left handed fly tier, we programmed the DVD so that both Left handed and Right handed fly tiers can easily follow his methods. Brian Chan shows you step-by-step, how to tie 11 favorite stillwater flies that he has been successfully using throughout his career as a fly fisherman. Brian then shows you the techniques he uses to catch fish with those same flies. It's fascinating even for the experienced fly-fisherman. Not only that, Brian catches the insects his flies immitate and then shows you where to look for the signs or clues that indicate which fly would be a good bet to fish with.
Join Skip at his tying bench as he ties five flies, step-by-step… Skip takes you into his tying room and explains tools, hooks, terminology, and teaches you to tie several excellent flies (the Woolly Bugger, Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear, Adams, Elk Hair Caddis, Rick's Caddis, and hair-wing/hair-tail dry flies). Why these particular flies? For two very important reasons… Skip chose these particular flies because these flies have been around a long time, they're proven and deadly, and by tying them you learn basic tying techniques that are the basis of tying flies in general.
