ive been trying to tie some of price's LMB flies. i dont have any schlappen hackle or poly rope though.
what exactly is schlappen hackle? is it just big webby hackle from a different part of the bird? can i get the same effect from using saddle hackle? how do i get any hackle to be so stringy like is pictured here in step 5?
is this poly rope he uses an actual fly tying material, or is it something i could find at the local craft store or something? thanks
