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.
Once you’ve been tying for a while, you’ll have amassed quite a few different kinds of fly-tying materials, and you’ll need a way to store and organize them. Tim says that he’s tried many different methods but keeps coming back to Zip-Loc storage bags, and he explains why and how he uses them. A good storage system protects your materials–which can be expensive–and allows you to find what you need without a lot of time wasted by rummaging around.
