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.
Tim is always looking for ways to make tying easier and more efficient, but he’s always been frustrated that most tweezers don’t perform as well as expected. The solution, he says, is to spend just a few extra bucks on a high-quality set of tweezers. (His cost $15 at the drugstore.) When you see what these tweezers can do, you’ll be sold on the idea.
