Here’s the latest installment in 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.
Mylar tubing comes in a wide variety of colors, styles, and shapes, and it can be used to make cool fly bodies. In this video, Tim walks you through some of different styles of tubing, walks you through some of the material’s benefits, and demonstrates how easy it is to work with Mylar.
