Here’s the latest video in our series 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.
In this installment, Tim shares a tip for storing small packages of materials, such as beads and hooks. He prefers to keep them in their packages, so if “disaster happens,” you’re not left chasing after tiny beads and hooks and then trying to determine the size of each. Instead, you just pick up the packages and put them back in the box.
