Here’s the latest video in our series called “One-Minute Fly-Tying Tips and Techniques,” from Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions. Each video teaches 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 part II of his series on Craft Fur, Tim shows you how he prepares a new “pelt,” and then goes on to show you how useful the underhairs can be. By saving the fuzzy stuff as dubbing, you can use it in several ways to make great fly bodies and collars.
