Default Fly Tying and Pattern Links

In response for requests for links to other fly tying and pattern sites the following is submitted.
This site has just about everything. Patterns, tutorials, humor,etc. Highly recommended.
Another great site. Very similar to our own NGTO.
Actually four sites in one. Fly Tying / Rod Building / Fly Fishing / Classic Fly Tying. Take a look at some of the Salmon flies. Simply beautiful.
Hans Weilenmann's site. Patterns from all over the world. Including, I believe, some by our own members.
Offers downloadable tying tutorials. Approx. 50 30 minute programs with about 150 flies.
Patterns, Wallpaper, etc.
Patterns, entomology etc.
Patterns for warm water,etc.
FlyFisherman's Magazine website, Patterns, Articles, etc.
Patterns, articles, etc.
Links to fly tying and patterns
Animations of wrapping, whip finish, etc.
Tutorials of 20 + well known patterns
Videos of Matarelli whip finish, hand whip finish/ hair stacking, etc.
Patterns and tutorials from the UK. Many of our favorites, but also many interesting patterns that I'm sure would work here in the Southeast US.
Entomology, pictures of insects, etc.
Patterns with pictures and tying instructions
Fly Fishing Entomology
Fly Fishing Entomology
Patterns and tutorials
Step by step instructions
Short clips of various fishing subjects including how-to's
Flymph/Wingless wets patterns etc.
Patterns for approx. 850 flies with more being added all the time. Really haven't looked at this site a lot, but it does look promising.
Soft hackle patterns
Fly tying videos Quick look at this site and it appears to have about 90 short tying videos with each one featuring a different fly. No voice instruction, just visual presentation. The backgroud music wasn't bad! Fly Tyer magazine online. Patterns, articles etc. Classic wet flies Photos and recipes Western Trout Flies-Yellowstone Reference Collection
This site offers some history of early fly tying in the western states along with some photos of these flies. Many of these flies will work on our waters. From across the pond. A lot of stillwater patterns, but they will work on our moving waters also. Some foam hoppers and other patterns using foam. The late Jack Gartside's site. Fly tying videos 533 fly fishing sites!!

I realize that this is only a very small sampling of sites. Please feel free to post or PM me with other sites along with any comments you have on that site. I will then add them to this list.

I don't fish to live, but I live to fish.
I thought I made a mistake once, but I was wrong.

Consider it stuck.

Here is the site where I learned most of my basic flies:

Many folks here will remember it as "" but he forgot to renew his domain lease and somebody snatched it from him. It still has good animation of how to wrap, whip finish, etc.

Thanks guys, and if somehow, magically, ALL those sites don't have what you are looking for just google "fly tying" or "fly tying patterns". I think all those sites should be sufficient. Once again, THANKS GUYS!
The first thing scripture tells us about man is that we're made in the image of God. The second thing it says is that man should have dominion over the fishes of the sea.

Stumbled across this site that has a great compilation of recipes and tutorials for a wide range of flies.
Nothing is impossible the impossible just takes a little longer. So take your time and enjoy the experience.

Default Thanks for the websites

I've been needing some good websites to get patterns from, and I am looking forward to using these.
