A couple weeks ago, we launched a new 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.
In our third installment, Tim shows you how to load your tying thread into the bobbin. Some begginers struggle with trying to get the limp thread through the tube, but Tim shows two simple ways to accomplish that. Come back every Tuesday for a new video that will help you improve your skills.
