    Default Fly Tying Tutorials

    I am just starting fly tying and was wondering if anyone knew of a good website with either video tutorials or normal turtorials for tying various nymphs or dry flies.
    "Unless one can enjoy himself fishing with the fly, even when his efforts are unrewarded, he loses much real pleasure. More than half the intense enjoyment of fly-fishing is derived from the beautiful surroundings, the satisfaction felt from being in the open air, the new lease of life secured thereby, and the many, many pleasant recollections of all one has seen, heard and done." - Charles F. Orvis

    I have found myself scrolling back in this forum to older posts. There are some great websites that have been suggested. Take a look back at the oldies.
    Good luck and if you get a chance if you need to try and get in to one of the tying classes. I am looking forward to the intermediate class on the 19th.

    There used to be a great website for beginners at tie1on.net. A local smokies guy kept up the website and it had quite a few smokies variations to patterns on it. There were also quite a few detailed animations great for beginners. Does anyone know what happened to this site? Has it moved to another web address?

    there are some great tutorials on Hugh's site at:

    http://www.smokymountainflyguide.com/

    I would also suggest LRO's beginner tying class (I believe there is one in Feb.) These classes are hard to beat......

    Try this one: http://www.maineflyfish.com/flytying...ie/brassie.htm

    I'd really just recommend googling the name of a fly you're interested in. You'll probably find multiple sites for most any fly. Google is your friend!
