Welcome to the latest installment of our 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.
The Internet is full of “hacks” that are supposed to make your life better in some small way, but few are as truly useful as this tip for creating a homemade tool for tying. Tim’s “dubbing brush and magnet tool” probably costs less than a buck to make, but it will save you countless minutes at the vise.
