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 III of his series on Craft Fur, Tim demonstrates an ingenious method for creating tapered ends on a clump of Craft Fur. This allows you easily to create realistic-looking tails on streamer patterns. All you gotta do is split, flip and twist!
