Bens’ style of flytying is best described as realistic tying: realistic flies to use as bait but also super-realistic flies for display.
For example, he tied a stone fly emerging from a nymph which took almost 90 hours to tie. He also spend a lot of time tying fishing flies because he feel even a fishing fly should look like a fly, not bait.
Ben want his fishing flies to have distinguisable features: tails, eyes, legs, wings. He is always searching for new patterns, techniques and solutions to create better and even more realistic flies..
