Insect Mimicry on a Whole New Level

A place to discuss the collecting and tying of classic flies, the tyers who made them famous, the tools, materials and techniques they used as well as the waters they were designed for. While classic is generally used to describe old things, classic is also used in the sense of first class or in the highest form. Therefore a fully dressed Salmon Fly, or a Carrie Stevens Streamer are just as much classics as a Chernobyl Ant would be. Enjoy the forum.

There was a fellow years ago that came to the Mayfly Club gathering in the Catskills and signed his new book, "Flies As Art". He took creating realistic flies to a whole different galaxy. Google "Paul Whillock flies". Not sure whatever happened to the fellow though.

Lot of work there but you results are great. Remember your first video of placing the ants and this one making them wraps up the project. Thanx for sharing.
