Welcome to the latest installment of our 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.

As Tim notes, many tiers prefer epoxy resins because they are cheaper and result in an almost indestructible coating. As usual, Tim has figured out the easiest, most effective, and efficient way to use these adhesives.
