a bit dismayed by what seems to be a habit of only showcasing a few selected tiers repeatedly here, the dismal truth is, if could find among what seems to be billions of other tying tutorials worthy of being shared, i most definitely would.
just to show that there’s still hope, this great tutorial of the Herl May Callibaetis nymph by Grant Bench is a fine breath of fresh air and i hope to have more of his work to share soon.
among others, a nice trick here is pre-treating the future wing case cover with UV resin directly on the feather before removing the fibers as this keeps them together without bunching, protects them from sharp little teeth and also makes the tying process easier. good stuff indeed. (let’s just hope the strange music will be left out in future videos… )
