Lefty Kreh and Bob Clouser are on the fly tying bench together and showing us some deadly saltwater and freshwater flies. They start by demonstrating bend back flies with Bob showing how he ties a Bendback Clouser. Next its Bucktail Deceivers, which are easy to tie and which look fantastic in the water. Despite being quite large flies, this pattern is lightweight and therefore can be cast using 8 or 9 weight rods. It can be used effectively for saltwater species like snook, tarpon and redfish as well as Northern Pike in freshwater and in smaller sizes for largemouth and smallmouth bass. Lefty and Bob then tie classic versions of their two most famous patterns, Bob's Clouser Minnow and Lefty's Deceiver and discuss how many variations can be made once the style is mastered. Bob then shows us the Maxi Minnow which can be 6-9 inches long which is sometimes crucial to attract larger fish, whilst Lefty's shows us the Hackle Fly, a classic bass pattern. We watch Bob tie his BP Clouser tied on a smaller hook which is fantastic for bonefish before Lefty discusses Popping Bugs which are excellent in both freshwater and saltwater and then shows us how he makes a popping bug from scratch. Finally, Bob and Lefty demonstrate the Half and Half, which is....you guessed it, half Clouser Minnow and half Lefty's Deceiver. Tying Flies that Catch Fish is a timeless instructional video as you can be pretty sure that the patterns invented by these two, will be catching fish for eternity.

The Mayfly is one of the most celebrated insects amongst fly anglers around the world and mainly because their annual hatch invariably triggers a frenzy from trout and grayling. This upwinged insect has an incredible lifecycle.....after living in the river as a nymph for a year, its life ends 24hrs later as it falls to the river to lay its eggs and start the cycle again. This final 24hr period is crucial to trout as they intercept the Mayfly as it leaves the river bed, swims to the surface, hatches and then lands again several hours later. Fly fishing expert, Barry Beck talks us through the various stages of the Mayfly before demonstrating tying the imitations he likes to use. After each tying of the nymph, emerger, dun and spinner, Barry takes to the river and shows how he fishes these patterns and proves how well they work. To watch, login or register

Tony Jay, shows you how to tie two popular fly patterns, the Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear and the Adam's dry fly. Both of these great flies, the GRHE as a nymph and the Adam's as dry fly are tried and tested patterns that will work on all manner of fish from brown trout, rainbow trout and grayling but of course also on many other species. The GRHE is to be fished as a nymph under the surface if the water, it pretty much imitates most of the trout's food items and that's why it's so successful. The Adam's dry fly is a kind of panacea for most anglers, it kind of covers everything in the Olive or upwing family and so it's generic profile makes it a number one choice. The great thing about these patterns is the fact that you won't be needing any fancy materials to be able to create them, these flies are simple to tie with minimal materials and yet they are still very effective. Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear: Hook: Wet fly any size Thread: brown or black Tail: Hare's fur Body: Hare's fur Rib: Gold wire Thorax Cover: Pheasant Tail Fibres. Adam's Dry Fly: Hook: Dry Fly any size Thread: Light coloured Tail: Natural Cock Fibres Body: Grey Dubbing Hackle: Grizzle and natural game mixed.
