Here’s another installment in a series of videos called “One-Minute Fly-Tying Tips and Techniques” from Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions. Each video will teach 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.
In this great video, Tim shows you how to create a streamer body using Mylar tubing, which is common in many baitfish imitations. The technique is not difficult, but it’s important that you properly anchor and trim the material to get a smooth, good-looking shape on the hook shank. Your Zonkers will be the envy of your fishing buddies.
