Hey there, welcome to Scott’s Virtual Fly Tying. This site is designed to help you become a better fly tyer and, ultimately, to catch a few more fish.
Each fly pattern on the site, whether it’s a mayfly pattern, a stonefly pattern, or caddisfly pattern or a streamer pattern has been carefully chosen to capture as many of the fundamental fly tying skills as possible. My goal is to help you develop skills and techniques so that you can confidently tie any fly pattern you come across.
You will also find a section on entomology (the study of bugs). Understanding specific bug anatomy and behavior will improve your ability to accurately replicate these bugs when tying. But more importantly, it makes you more educated and intentional when you’re actually on the water.
