Fly Tying For Beginners | Fly Tying Video

I know ive neglected to cover much about fly tying and learning how to tie flies in the developement of this blog. But I do have a full time job and keeping regular posts that have some value to both the fly fishing beginner and fly tier has been difficult. In previous posts I discussed the various tools required for fly tying and a list of basic fly tying materials. Over the last few weeks I've been looking for ways to bring more fly tying for beginner related material into my fly fishing for beginners coverage. I have been fortunate enought to find a whole series of free fly tying video lessons that anyone can follow along and master fly tying.
This first video is about tying a "Buzzer" Tying the Buzzer requires a fly tying vise, fly hook sz 10-12, scissors, bobbin holder, black fly tying thread , medium silver wire, fly tying varnish, and a needle or bodkin to apply the fly tying varnish. I hope you enjoy the video and learn as much as I did. This is one of the easiest flies to start with as a beginning fly tier.



Most all of the components required for this fly tying lesson are available in most beginner fly tying kits, including the fly vise, scissors, fly tying materials and hooks. If you don't already have the necessary fly tying materials you might consider shopping ebay for a nice used fly tying kit or inexpensive beginners fly tying kit.

Nice Blog. You have a bunch of good information on Fly Fishing. I have been tying flies since I was 12, and I would have to say that there is not much better than catching a fish on a home-made fly.
