How to tie the Mahler Single strand mono shrimp fly video

We shot this at ICAST 2014 Orlando at the Mustad booth a few days ago. The tier is no other than Joe Mahler, the inventor of the fly himself.

Joe shows us how to use one strand of mono to tie his fly from start to finish. The video is uncut and it runs under 8 minutes.

ICAST 2014 new gear coverage , 15 second video clips

ICAST 2014 in Orlando was full of new latest and greatest gear as usual. What I normally do is post photos but this year I decided to upload 15 second videos instead. I believe this tells more about the product that any photo can ever do.

15 seconds is short enough to keep people’s interest and long enough to tell a quick story.

Here are a few of the ones I uploaded to Instagram and Facebook pages during the show.

I will be posting more as I have a chance to upload them to Youtube and get the descriptions.
