Video from our last TU Meeting: Fly Tying "The Usual"

The fly pattern called “The Usual” is a versatile fly that definitely falls under the minimalist category in terms of number of materials and simplicity. In this video, John Kelly of the Bill Wills Southeast Virginia Trout Unlimited Chapter shows how to tie his version.
