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.
In the sixth part of a new series on tube flies, Tim puts all the pieces together, showing you how to tie a basic tube fly and then how to rig it. If you’ve been following this series, you can see that there’s really nothing terribly difficult about the process, and the result is a cool pattern that’s durable, easy to change, doesn’t give the fish much leverage to use against you, and can be tweaked and tinkered with endlessly. Tim’s video on how to tie a standard Squirrel and Herl Bugger is here. See links for Tim’s entire Tube Fly series below.
