Tying silks

In this short video we explain how to flatten or tighten tying silks.

Straightening a tapered leader

Presentation is key when it comes to fishing. Having a leader that isn’t coiled and lays correctly on the surface will help present your fly in a more natural way. See our short video on an affective way to straighten a tapered leader after removing it from the packet. You’ll be amazed at how affective it is and how it can help you put more fish on the bank. In this short clip, Pete’s using the nifty Cliff Outdoors Strait n Dry to straighten his leader.
