Video: How to Tie the Frozen Fox

The color blue is a favorite among winter anglers, and this cool streamer looks made for icy waters. In this week’s video from Tightline Productions, Tim shows you how to tie a simple streamer, which can be tied in any color combination to match the forage or the season. I know that a copper version would work great in my home waters. As usual, Tim’s tutorial is full of great tips that will help you tie more attractive and durable flies.
