I got them and found them very helpful.

There's loads of stuff out there on how to cast but not so much on how to fish.

As a beginner on a northern spate river similar to the Wharfe (which features in most of the vids) it was good to see him trying a wide range of methods. Following his advice (and the magic ingredient of confidence) I've tried and been successful with all the methods demonstrated on the Wharfe.

A good proportion of the videos are taken up with fly tying.

ETA the youtube clips give a good feel of what you're getting

I have North Country Spiders, Czech Nymphing and Streamer fishing and I've found all of them to be really informative. The fly tying sections on each are fantastic.

All the best
