My first, but definitely not last visit
to a great site! Al Campbell's how to section re Fly
Tying is outstanding! I will be tying some Shapf Flys this
week for a local jaunt. D.A. . . . Napa, Ca
Thanks a lot... I love your fly tying
lessons by Al Campbell. Tonight was the first time I
have seen it so I copied all 9 lessons and will start practising
right away in hopes of catchin up. Will look for lesson 10
next week. Again thanks a lot. A.A.V. . . .Elgin, IL. USA

are the best I've seen on the Internet on fly tying, by far!

Enjoying your weekly columns, and
finding very useful, the Beginning Fly Tying, by Al Campbell.
He is doing a really great job. As a former instructor, I can
recognize the effort in his work. S.M. . . .Minnesota
I want to thank you soooooo much for
the beginners Fly tying 'course' you are giving online. I am
learning sooooo much from it. As soon as I get another black
refill for my printer I am going to print out one through four
so I can go back through them again and again. I am looking
forward to getting a vise next week, and hopefully some equipment
thereafter. . . . PLEASE continue with the 'course' I surely do
appreciate your help. I bid you peace, love and joy . . .C (no town
Just a quick note to tell you how much I've
enjoyed (and still am) your series of articles on Beginning Fly
Tying! Although I've been tying my own flies for a while now,
I've found every part easy to read and very useful. Especially
the last two on using whip-finishers. Just like you said, I never
bothered to use the tools and did it by hand instead. My
teacher (and most books) seem to prefer teaching the old methods only.
Bah! . . .Oh yes - please don't neglect to discuss the subject of tying
deer-hair poppers for bass at some future point in your series of articles.
Thanks again for the most interesting articles! . . .A. L. . . . Cape Town,
If you haven't been following the Beginning
Fly Tying section, you may be missing great tips and hints on
all sorts of methods to tie. Along with suggestions on tools and
materials. Maybe a fly you have not tied! Our thanks to those
who sent the comments - keep them coming folks, Al loves to
hear from you!
Don't miss out, join the folks reading the
Introduction to Fly Tying.
