From Chris:

With regards to fly tying and fishing, I have done both since I was 9-years-old. Even with my rather limited math skills, I believe that translates to 40 years experience. Although I do fish and tie nymphs, my true passion is for dry fly-fishing, especially of the very small variety. Favorite hatches involve fishing baetis, midges, and tricos. I look upon fly-tying as a continually evolving process with new materials and new twists on old ties and methods emerging all of the time. My philosophy as a fly-tier is that tying is really a way of problem-solving. I spend a great deal of time on streams and lakes with much time being spent simply as an observer of entomology and nature. I try to come up with patterns that fit different situations, try to be innovative in the creation of flies to solve different problems, and I also try to learn from other individuals in order to be a better tier and fisherman.
While I certainly would not consider myself a famous tier or fly fisherman, I have been demonstrating fly-tying at expos (including the tremendous East Idaho Expo), fly club meetings, for community groups, and in shops for about the last eight years. Some of my flies have also been featured in Fly Fish America, and I am currently a member of Whiting's Pro Team. Also, I am currently producing a line of dry fly and emerger patterns that will be marketed by Riverborn Flies in 2010.
Over the years, I have been helped by many people to improve my skills as a tier and fly fisherman, and to those folks I owe a great debt of gratitude. I truly love this sport and as I grow to be a mature member of the fly tying and fishing community, it is one of my goals to pass on a little of the knowledge I have accumulated over the years.

From Al:

I grew up in Michigan and have fished as long as I can remember. After graduating college, I moved to California and gravitated toward fly fishing almost exclusively. I have been tying “seriously” since 1983 and have been a tying instructor both independently and for several Colorado fly shops since 2000. In 2005 I also began guiding along Colorado’s front range. Currently I am a member of Whiting Farms Pro Staff and am employed by PEAK Fishing and I have several fly patterns commercially available. In addition to guiding, tying instruction and demos, my wife Diana and I own and operate our own company geared primarily toward flyfishing education services. More detailed information is available at www.alrittflies.com.

  • Hook: Tiemco 3761

The Weekly Fly

There are plenty of fly tiers who have filmed themselves tying a fly in their basement with a handy cam and posted it on places like YouTube. Ours are different in quality. In quality of tiers, quality of flies tied, and quality of production value of the fly tying instruction videos, and also in quantity. We want to be THE source for the best free fly tying videos and for fly tying instructions. We will be adding a fly pattern a week until there are no more. We will also be making our free library searchable by fly type and fly tier and organized in a way that makes it more useful to find the fly of the week. We hope you enjoy the best fly tying videos on the net.
