Generally I don't like these "favorite" threads a whole lot. Not sure why. But I know a lot of us are holed up at home, and if the weather is lousy where you are, you may be running out of things to keep you occupied. I really enjoy watching fly tying videos(mostly youtube). Davie McPhail has always been one of my favorite tiers, but I am finding his videos especially appealing to watch lately, as he has a very soothing voice and the background music is very comforting as well. Not to mention that he is a great tier and instructor. If you are watching fly tying videos these days, who are some of your favorites.

I also enjoy Davie McPhail. Another favorite of mine is Oliver Edwards.

The best video I have ever watched on fly tying was a VHS tape made by Del Mazza. Very difficult to find. He sent me a copy of it on DVD a number of years ago.

Dave Brandt has two videos on Catskill dry flies that are very good also.

After that then +1 for Oliver Edwards' videos.

I’ve learned a lot from McPhail’s videos, as I have those from Tightlinevideos...

Personally, I’ve been watching a lot of You Tube featuring Galloup and Craven’s work.

Not a lot out there but sure do enjoy watching the Dennis Skarka videos. Only met him one time but sure did enjoy talking with him, regret wasn’t able to spend additional time talking with him and learning from his tying skills

Had the honor of taking some classes with Del back in the day when he visited my old favorite shop, American Angling Supplies in Salem, NH. Quite a character and amazing tier.

While not exactly a video, in 1976, as my newly wedded wife and I were walking into the Metropolitan Museum of Art, they were running a film of John Atherton tying a dry fly. I took it as good omen as I had just barely begun my plunge into flyfishing
