I've watched several of Mr. Cammiss' demonstrations. You really have to respect the finishing without the use of a whip finish tool and only his fingers.

kytroutman,
Actually, I had more trouble with a whip finisher in the beginning and just finished by hand. It backfires sometimes and knots up too early

I've never seen anyone do a hand whip finish quite the way he does, and I've seen quite a few

I've seen his videos and they are good but the patterns are mostly still water my favorite videos on youtube are by DavieMcPhail.
They are great and he seems like an amazing fly tyer.

3WT, Thanks for the video link to David McPhail. He is easy to watch.
