10 Years of Davie McPhail on Youtube

Though as far as I know his first tying videos were uploaded to a now defunct website called Hatches.tv in 2008, McPhail came on the YouTube scene in 2009 and immediately set a very high bar for video production quality, tying expertise and a flair for clear and concise presentation. He is so good a...

Re: Making Organza Ribbon Hackle.

In this video, Mcphail wraps an organza abdomen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9-EuNpNHJo I think it looks ok mainly because he uses such a large hook. In more realistic pupa sizes, say #18 to # 14, I'm not so sure how well it would come out. You would have to choose your organza very carefully. F...
