Video: How to Production-Tie a Chubby Chernobyl

In last week’s One-Minute Tying Tips video, Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions showed you how useful it can be to have all your materials prepped, in the manner of production tiers, before you tie several flies of the same pattern. Here, Tim demonstrates how this works in real time. He ties a Chubby Chernobyl from start to finish, with no edits, and you can really see how having everything ready to be ties in speeds up the process.
