Video: Understanding Different Types of Fly-Tying Scissors


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.

For most household jobs, a single pair of scissors will do, but fly-tying is a different story. You don’t want to use your finest, sharpest scissors to cut materials that may dull the blades, and sometimes a specific kind of scissors are required to cut different materials. Here, Tim shows the different scissors he uses on his tying bench–from the big blades for cutting coarse materials to the “old Billy Baroo,” which are reserved for trimming hackles close to the hook. He mentions that he recently started using non-stick spring-loaded scissors; to see the pair shown in the video, click here.
