Here’s the latest installment of our 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.
Tim Flagler is all about doing things quickly and easily at the vise, so when he stumbles on a trick to help him in that cause, he embraces it wholeheartedly. Picking up a pair of angled tweezers looks like a no-brainer, once you see all the ways that Tim uses them to pick things up, hold feathers, and make accurate measurements.
