From time to time, we have guest tyers and this tutorial is one of those. Our buddy Casey Thompson (@twitchtied801) hasn't been tying for a lot of years, but he's meticulous in his craft churning out some clean buggy bugs. e've got a couple more of his videos in the works, so stay tuned... Plus in this video, you'll see a cool technique to make the Wally style wings that you can also use on other styles of nymphs and pupa.
