Fly Tying

Video Tutorial Fly Tying

Author's Note
We wanted to document many of the available weaves in video format to help not only inspire our customers, but to keep an archive of resources for all maillers. Being an Australian business we wanted to help our customers with metric sizes where we can but we have found that using both metric and imperial has given us the best of both worlds. We hope the videos prove to be of worth to the world wide Chainmaillers community.
