fly tying tips

“Episode #24 of the Backwater Vlog gets us into 5 fly tying materials that you need to use on your favorite flies!” – Jesse Males

When fly tying it is often easy for some people to get used to using the same materials over and over and never really branch out to new items they may see in the fly shop or online. Episode #24 of the Backwater vlog showcases 5 fly tying materials that you NEED TO USE!


As you can see some of these materials are widely used but have been updated to showcase a new look or style. Sometimes as fly tyers even these materials can help stretch our creativity and make sure we keep the stoke on whipping up new flies.

If you are like me and tie a ridiculous amount of flies each week then these tips will help you break out of the mold and get a fresh look at the tying bench.

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of backwaterflyfishing.com as well as our online fly shop, backwaterflies.com. The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
