Video: How to Make a Neat Thread Head on a Fly

A few years ago, we launched a new series of videos called “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 great video, Tim demonstrates how to create a nice, neat head on any kind of fly. When I first started tying, I was often frustrated by the bulbous, oversize heads on my patterns, ruining the fly’s profile. Had I known about Tim’s “no tie zone,” I would have been much more satisfied with the results (and might have caught more fish, too).
