Podcast: Rare, Unusual, and Underutilized Fly-Tying Materials with Tim Flagler


Written by: Tom Rosenbauer



I am betting that this week’s podcast—an interview with superb videographer and fly tier Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions—will be one of the most popular of the year. As typically happens with us, we go off on some crazy tangents but it’s all about fly tying and it gets a bit geeky. . .something I have found that lots of our listeners enjoy.

And if that’s not enough, the Fly Box covers carrying a second rod on the river, picking hackle capes, DT vs. WF lines (again!), fall-spawning rainbows, casting leaders with heavy flies and weight on them, midging trout during the winter, night-fishing tips, and fluoro vs. nylon for tippets.
