I recently created another Nymph Skin creation — the Nymph Skin Grub. Despite it's It's easy to tie and is extremely effective. The realism created with the use of Nymph Skin is unmatched. If you can wrap chenille around the shank of the hook in order to make Green Weenies or Woolly Buggers, you can use Nymph Skin with ease.

Decided to post the video here. I posted it over on CFT as well.

Lastly, I hope I don't make you too dizzy and disoriented. The camera I'm using has some trouble focusing on close objects (in this case, the fly). It's an excellent camera, just doesn't work so well with the macro setting enabled while shooting a video.

That really does make a great looking fly. I may have to add that to my materials list, and I also like that you recommended lead free wire.

Nice touch with the Bluegrass too.

I think the situation with the camera is that the tying motion is triggering the auto focus. Not positive about that. You may be able to do something in a manual mode. The focus issue wasn't too bad though.

Very well done video. That looks like a pattern I need to learn and add to the box. Good work :)

Thanks guys! They're fun to tie. Even more enjoyable to fish!

Mark- I think that's the issue. It focuses just fine if the subject isn't moving. I'm looking to upgrade to a full HD camcorder to do tying videos, shooting on the stream, etc. Looking at the Canon Vixia family of camcorders. The Vixia Hv40 has my eye.
