Fly Tying- a Quick and lovely Olive

robert strahl green drake

for a first tying video, this doozy by Robert Strahl is well, a doozy and one hell of a nice start !  those of us that follow Robert’s work through Facebook are well aware that he’s an exceptional tier, i can’t wait to see further videos.

for most, this pattern will probably be way too mussy and fussy and as far as actual fishing flies go i’d mostly agree, but that don’t matter ’cause its pretty and pretty is non-fattening eye candy plus there’s more than a few tying techniques to pick up along the way that the creative tier can benefit from. its all good, enjoy !
