REVIEW: MIDWEST FLY FISHING - ... the majority of what I have seen from Bennett Watt is easy to recommend. By way of example: Today I viewed three fly tying programs that might be of interest to Midwestern fly fishers. The titles are "Learning to Tie Flies with Dick Talleur", "Favorite Flies with Rene Harrop: and "Spinning Deer Hair with Chris Helm: All do a superb job of presenting their subject. They are, one might say, "as advertised" In other words, you get what you pay for. While their tying styles vary, all three hosts have a clear command of their subject and each does a precise, craftsman like job in the presentation. You don't find yourself constantly asking, "what did he mean by that?" The thing I like best about these programs is that uncluttered close-ups allow us to see exactly what is done in every single tying step on every fly. Whoever's behind the camera on these programs knows what his or her job is. Each of these shows appeals to a different level of tier, so it would be unfair to compare the hosts. I will say that it is easy to recommend each program to any viewer who wishes to learn it's subject.
