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.
Last week, Tim demonstrated how to save your work with a Borger double hitch. This week, he shows a different–and totally ingenious–way to make a double hitch using the nozzle of your bobbin. With a little practice, you’ll be able to do this in seconds, which means that the process will barely slow down your tying.
