Here’s the latest in the series of videos 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 this great video, Tim shares a useful tip on how you can use bubble-tea straws (often called “boba-tea straws“) to conveniently store longer synthetic materials. This may seem a strange idea until you see how it works. Once you see how Tim has his unruly materials neatly arranged, you’ll be sold.
