 Evolution of Fly Tying Techniques Needed for 'Baits' Motel

Presenter:  Don Ordes

Don’s ‘Baits Hotel’ (home of psycho-flies) is a hoot for anyone with a good sense of humor, appreciation of art, and who can let go of practicality for a half hour show.   On the other hand, his ‘Rope-dubbing’ technique is a fast and simple method of dubbing that adapts itself to any dubbing and any size hook, without the use of tools, wax, loops or split threads.  Watching it being done properly is the best way to learn it in its limitless applications, then with a little practice one can master it. From mole hair to buffalo, ice dub to syn-seal, any dubbing can be perfectly applied, even in different styles, creating simple, segmented, durable flies across the whole range of tying.
