Here’s the latest installment in an ongoing 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.
Previously, Tim has walked you through the options for natural dubbing materials, and here he takes you through some of the myriad choices of man-made stuff. There are so many different kinds of synthetic dubbing that Tim can’t name them all, so he breaks them down into categories, depending on the main features of the materials and how they are best used at the vise.
