Here’s another installment in a 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 the fourth part of a new series on tube flies, Tim describes the many fly-tying accessories designed specifically for tube flies–from cones to fit various tubes, to weights that allow you to adjust how the fly rides in the water, and more. Using these tools, you can design tube patters to fit almost any angling situation.
