Video: How to Deal with Loose Hanks of Material


Here’s the latest installment of our series of videos called “One-Minute Fly-Tying Tips and Techniques” from Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions. Each video teaches a single tying skill, from the most basic to the advanced. Ultimately, the series will serve as a sort of encyclopedia of tying skills that will be a valuable resource for anyone who sits down at a vise to create a fly.

If you tie a lot of flies without maintaining good organization of your materials, your tying desk can quickly become unmanageable–with materials all over the place. If you’ve got small kids or a cat, this situation can lead to disaster. Tim Flagler ties a lot of flies, so over the years he’s developed ingenious methods for keeping his materials in place and close at hand. Your hank of Krystal Flash can turn into a nasty tangle if you just leave it lying around. Here, Tim shows you how to use stringy materials without ever taking the whole hank out of the package.
