    900fusion, very cool video! My son and I just attended a fly tying seminar and needless to say we are both hooked. We tied some flies today while watching the football games. I must say the video makes it look easier than it really is, for me anyways, but I am sure with practice they will become easier! Thanks for the video!

    No problem. One step that will help you out is don't over wrap your thread. If you have any questions feel free to ask

    Another tip I learned when I was first starting is to throw some half hitches in your fly every now and then. It will prevent your thread from unraveling too much and letting material out if you fail to keep consistent tension (not that I've ever done that) or accidentally break your thread (okay, I may have done that.)

    It doesn't solve the tension and breakage problems, but it saves some frustration along the way.
