Livingston Montana was the gathering place as fly fishers from around the world descended on the city in early August 2016 to take part in the International Fly Fishing Fair. The week-long event brought some of the best fly fishers in the sport together to share their skills and learn new ones. A group representing Fishing Vision LTD attended and filmed portions of the event so that others in Japan and around the world could learn about the many activities of the International Federation of Fly Fishers. Credit for the production include FISHING VISION Co.,LTD, www.fishingvision.tv , President Ryo Arisawa, Executive Director Junya Miyaji and 3 other production staff members.

Hannie’s Damselfly: Here is an imitative dry fly pattern that casts well, floats high and looks very much like its living counterpart. Though not suggested for beginning tiers they may not be at too much of a disadvantage compared to more experienced tiers as this pattern utilizes non-typical tying skill sets. We will use deer hair in this pattern but probably not as you have seen it used before. This pattern will have an extended body that will have you tying directly onto a strand monofilament with little or no tension from your bobbin. But don’t be intimidated because it takes you out of your fly tying comfort zone, adding realism to a fly sometimes demands it. Click here for the pattern.
