Video: How to Store Fly-Tying Materials

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.

  1. I rigged up two, 2×4 sheets of peg board and hung them from the ceiling in my basement. I store my hackle and dubbing on them just like I got them from the fly shop. Very easy to find everything you need.
