A few years ago we launched a new series of videos called “Fly tying tips and techniques in a minute” by Tim Flagler of Tightline productions. Each video teaches a single binding skill, from the simplest to the most advanced. Ultimately, the series will serve as a sort of encyclopedia of tying skills that will be a valuable resource for anyone set to a vise to make a bow tie

Have you ever wondered why there are different types of hackles in fly shops and catalogues? In this video, Tim explains the differences between the three most popular types of hackles: rooster’s cape, rooster’s saddle, and chicken cape. Cloaks and saddles come from different parts of the bird and have different properties that affect how you can use them. Tim really went above and beyond when it comes to video special effects and graphics.
