Ed Story ties the Crackleback

November 7th, 2009 · 2 Comments

I’m a bit torn about showing these videos. On one hand, the producers cut a single tying video, of a relatively simple fly, into 3 segments. Seemingly, just to have 3 opportunities to present ads.  On the other hand, these videos are an opportunity to see a master craftsman tie a classic fly.  That decision wasn’t too difficult.

Here is Ed Story tying the Crackleback:

    That is a tough one. I also have a collection of fly tying videos and periodically post them to my blog but the ads are distracting so I tend to shy away from them.

    It is an honor to be a Signature designer for Feathercraft, but even a greater honor having known Ed as a younger tyer when he sent out Newletters packed full of all kinds of neat new tying materials, tools, and ideas. The Crackleback is a classic and worth having in any Fly Box as a Go To Pattern. It is even great to have a video of Ed Himself Tying !!!
