Here’s the latest “One-Minute Fly-Tying Tips and Techniques” from Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions. Each video will teach 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 video, Tim explains why he believes that patterns tied with Hungarian partridge feathers work so well on trout. The mottled markings on the feathers mimics the patterns found on natural nymphs, which allows the trout to distinguish food from floating detritus.
