Description

NEW HOOKED ON FLY TYING TITLES & RECIPES

24 new titles recorded in digital widescreen High Definition format by the world’s premier fly tying program producers Jim & Kelly Watt, these programs are educational/instructional DVD’s designed for all levels of fly tyers.

Dennis has been tying flies for over thirty years and these days is known as the “Pathological Tier”. Dennis has been teaching and sharing his tying skills for over 25 years. He travels extensively throughout the Midwest with the original “Close-Up Video Tying Theater” conducting patterns and techniques classes, and seminars. The state of the art close-up video program magnifies the fly and puts it right it your lap. In these classes, every tier has a perfect view of fly and every tying technique in great detail.

Dennis spends most of his angling time his Riverhouse on the banks of the AuSable “Holy Water”. He enjoys the challenge of the chasing trout during the little fly hatches like Tricos (Tiny Black Curse) and Little BWO’s (The Tiny Green Curse).

“Pattern” means nothing without “ Technique”. It is my goal that tiers gain a solid understanding of the techniques used in these patterns, many of which are “signature flies” created over years of fly design. This is not about speed and numbers. It is about technique, proportion and durability in the final product; a fly that you tied. Enjoy and Yippee Tie One On!
