How to Tie a Fly?

First thread 5 to 7 inches of tippet through the eye of the fly. Then hold the fly in one hand while using your other hand to wrap the tag end (loose end of the line used to tie a knot) of the tippet around the standing end (rest of the line) of the tippet five times. Once this is accomplished, use two fingers of the hand holding the fly to hold open a loop of line while wrapping the tippet around itself. Make sure the loop is in front of the eye of the fly. Thread the tag end of the tippet through the loop. Then hold the fly securely in one hand while using the other hand to pull on the standing end of the tippet to tighten the newly formed knot. Finally, clip the ends of your knots leaving about 1/8 inch to prevent slippage. You can find more information here:
