Video's - fly tying with "Wire Heads" by Doug Korn

Wire Heads - try 'em you'll like 'em.

I've been making these "Wire Heads" here in NY for many years.  A friend asked me to share them with you, so here they are.  I'm sure others have made similar heads in the past, but if so, I've never seen them. Please check out my "how to" video's below, enjoy.

These videos are a bit rough and unedited.  I hope you find them "good enough" for this demo... Doug.

Part 1: "How to" make wire heads on hooks instead of using beads: 

Part 2: features two flies tied with "Wire Heads": 

Note: I also tie; PT, GRHE, RS2's and several other nymphs like my version of the Copper John with wire heads.
