Video: How to Use Mylar Tubing, Part 2 — Making a Head

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.

Last week, in Part 1, Tim discussed the various colors, styles, and shapes of Mylar tubing. In this video, Tim shows you how to make a cool fly head by doubling the tubing over on itself a couple times. The result is flashy and will push water, which draws strikes from predatory fish.
