Here’s the latest video in our series 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.
Tim specializes in efficiency when he is tying. He is always looking for ways to do thing more quickly, with less effort, and using less material. Here, he shows you how to quickly and easily make a multi-strand tail by doubling the material around the thread and/or the hook shank. It’s simple and effective.
