Welcome to the latest installment of our series of videos called “One-Minute Fly-Tying Tips and Techniques” from Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions. A few years ago, Tim made a video all about ways that he keeps long hackles, legs, or other materials out of the way during the tying process, to avoid having to work around them. (Video: How to Hold Fly-Tying Materials Out of the Way.)
This week, he’s back with an update, since he’s discovered two very useful methods that weren’t covered previously. If you every find yourself wresting with unruly, long materials, Tim’s tricks can solve your problems.
