Following up the video on how to set bobbin tension, this is another very important tutorial, although a skill taken for granted, this shows how to attach your tying thread to the hook shank and how to master & retain basic thread control throughout your tying. If these simple skills are learned and practiced they will not only improve your tying but also make your time spent at the vice, much more enjoyable, and will result in neater and quicker flies. These short tutorials will hopefully help all those who are new to our craft, fly tying clubs & workshops, to get the new beginner off to a solid start and establish a good foundation for mastering the art of fly tying. If you have any questions regarding anything “fly tying” you can post a comment and I’ll try and answer it as soon as possible. If you know anyone that is starting tying, especially youngsters, please recommend this new series for them, they are the future of our craft!
