Good video - entertaining, educational and useful!

I used to have a "pet" redback spider, so I had to catch flies to feed it. People thought I was a bit odd when I spotted a fly and grabbed it (I used a more mundane method with a clear plastic cup and a piece of card).

I like your method and explanation :)

We use to catch horse flies, the bigger ones. Tie a thread or hair around them between the thorax and abdomen. Then you let them fly like a kite. When you get bored with them you yank the thread and cut them in half.

Thanks. Let me know if you try this. Also, if you do, try to make a video, and post it as a response. By "try this," I mean catch a fly with your bare hands, not grow a beard.
