I have to agree with drolfson. I teach fly tying all of the time and I use the video camera method. It works great and allows your audience to see the fly being developed almost as if they were tying it themselves.

If I am giving a first time presentation, I alway pick the bugger. It shows a bunch of the techniques we use to tie with and is a great starter fly for beginners.

Steven's tips on training were also very good and I would recommend you follow a plan similiar to his.

I also try to have a handout for all of the students to take home.
