Default Re: Having some trouble

I dont have and flex cement so I have been using head cement. Ill have to pick some up next time Im at the shop.

Jimmie,

I use .035 Lead Free wire which gives the fly a thicker thorax. I also use a little bit more dubbing for the thorax.

I also like that idea of coating the whole feather with the flex cement. Do you just use a little brush to do that? Also, where do you put the feather to let it dry?

Bobby
