Mayfly and Caddis are the most imitated aquatic organisms by fly tyers the world over and they have expanded beyond insect life, from minnows to amphibians. Today we also tie flies representing prey such as squids and many crustaceans that inhabit the oceans. With the help of so many technical advances we are able to make more realistic, functional and durable imitations. The tying techniques and materials are the most important information you will find in this DVD.
Learn and apply them and soon you'll be innovating your tired patterns into some imitations that will give you unforgettable times out on the water. Good fishing. Oscar Feliu a Chile native, came to the USA in 1969 and soon after became a fly fisher and fly tyer in America. As an entomology student he conducted aquatic studies in several Michigan rivers, his home of twenty years. His innovative fly patterns became well known throughout the Great Lakes region and were the subject of several newspaper and magazine articles.
Oscar subscribes to the "True to Life" style of fly tying. He's been a member of Trout Unlimited and The Federation of Fly Fishers for over three decades and has presented workshops for FFF International Conclave, demonstrations and classes in Canada, Italy, and throughout United States for the past 30 years. Oscar currently lives in Central Florida and continues to produce new fly patterns for trout, bass and salt water.
