New tying videos posted every Mon, Wed, Fri and Sat at 7:00 AM (EST). Our mission: tutorials, tips & tricks, and giving back to the tying community.
Welcome to Savage Flies! I have THREE goals to help achieve the mission:
1) Fly Tying Tutorials. I've been posting as many videos as I can reasonably make every week. Hopefully a new tier can learn a little something from each one.
2) Tips, tricks, product reviews, and fly histories. I think linking the next generation of tiers with our forefathers in the community is a great way to continue the heritage that makes fly fishing and tying such a great sport.
3) Giveaways. Sometimes there is no better way to give back to the community than simply, giving back. From vises, tools and tool kits, tying books, materials, etc, I want to help as many people as possible enjoy tying. So far I've been able to offer some type of raffle every month. Hopefully soon, we'll be able to do more, more often!
