I’ve been a big fan of Oliver Edwards. I remember stumbling onto one of his YouTube videos a few years ago and was instantly hooked. He had a unique way of demonstrating patterns and techniques – with wit and history sprinkled in.
The history part is what I really enjoy. And seeing materials that I’m not familiar with. The one thing that freaks me out a little – is that he wraps away and back towards his body. But his flies are exquisite – so it doesn’t matter really.
I highly recommend you take the time to watch some of. his tying and fishing videos. I bet you’ll have a few “a-ha” moments, just like I did.
