I have the answer to this one.....

I have some tape of Vladi from Poland tying some woven polish nymphs in my room at the World Fly Fishing Championships in Spain this year. It is in MPG format and can be downloadedvia email. I "was" going to put it on my site later this year. But in the interest of this thread if anyof you would like an unedited copy of the file let me know. The bad news is that the files are probably 2-10 meg each.

Anyone want to volunteer for an editing job?

John Desjardins I experimented with weaving a couple of years ago, but never mastered it. I think that there are a couple of amatuerish flys from me in the archives. The woven flys have a great multi color & texture appearance.

You may also find something by searching on the web for Tovril Korbu. 5 or 6 years ago she was in Flytier with some absolutely beautiful crochetted (sp?) flies, that won a Mustad competition.

flyfisha1 Yeah, I have the technique down, just wanted to see what everyone else was doing with it. I imagine that the possibilities are endless.

flytyer Flyfishal,

As Aaron so well explains, weaving is nothing more than making a series of overhand knots with the two body materials keeping the lighter color and the belly and the darker color as the back of the fly. The belly stripe is varied by the size or amount of the matierial used to form it. Weaving, as I know Aaron agrees, is not a difficult technique to learn.

MCorder SDH, take the "." off the end.

Aaron, any way (if I sent you a copy) of 'the tape.' ...

You could post same to your web site? Your run is about 10-12 minutes long, but it really covers the ground on how you do your woven fly's. Loardie only knows how many KB's it would take to down load if you weren't 'wired to the wall.'

Chris, Aaron, et. al's film is in the can.

With a touch of luck (short meeting tomorrow AM) will be off in the post to you.

Also included Paris Hilton's vid. ..... Naa .. you've got to look that one up on your own.

Snigger, snigger ...

Not sure if this is 'on point'... but her cell phone rings in the middle ....

Just me Of all the flies I can't tie,this is the one I can. I learned it from Aaron one Saturday and every time I pick out thread to tie with I wonder how it will look as a woven fly. I can sit all day I go at these but a regular fly beats me up. Go Aaron.

Jim Also known as old man in some circle's.

Chris, your copy of the 'Clave Tape, with Aaron..

is in the recorder as I type.

Aaron, you're looking very good in this segment of 'home vid's.' Actually listening to your voice in the background as I type.

Weaving flies is what I love.

The weave I do was patented in 1947 and I learned it a tender age of 13 and have been nuts for it every since.
A full 90% of the flies I dress are woven.
The size goes from a 55 mm Waddington shank
to a size 22 Rockwork.
If you want look at how I weave here is a link to my instructions on my site
This will give you a look at the basic technique
and is a good place to start.

Chris, if you want a copy of my Sandy 'Clave vid.

tape with a long run of Aaron 'doing his thing,' drop me a PM. Excuse the expression, 'the charge,' is a fiver to buy/copy/mail the tape.

Sitting across from Aaron I vid. the whole thing, including lots of 'hand close ups,' audio is also very good so you can hear everything he's saying. (You'll also get an hour of some of the best spey caster instructors in the world 'doing their thing.'

flyfisha1 Fred - I'll drop Aaron a line; I've seen some of his patterns on the forum - very nice.

Q - Yes, I remember seeing the post you refer to, that fly is really neat! That's the sort of stuff I'm talking about.

Quentin Try a search for "woven" on this site. There are a couple patterns with photos. One of them looks like an AWESOME hellgramite fly. I spent a little time trying to figure out how the woven part was done but never could get it quite right.
