Tying Instructions

Salmonfly.Net was originally a simple fly-tying instructions site, thus the name "Fly-tying Guide". So, though more flies than you can count are invented every year, the basic the instructions never change. Start at Basic Instructions, and go from there.

Many of the Salmonfly.Net contributors have written articles for Salmonfly.Net,  most about fly fishing or tying, or step-by-step fly-tying instructions for a particular fly. Most notable are the humorous stories of Dennis Dickson (above) of Dickson Flyfishing Steelhead Guides. All of his stories on this site center around instructions for tying one of his highly effective Steelhead flies. Dennis has years of experience as a guide and knows what works. Find all of these on the Articles page.
