Default Re: Secret to Properly Securing Hair to a Dry Fly

After tying your two loose wraps and then cinching them down, pull up a few of the butts and throw a wrap through them, pull up a few more, another wrap, and so on until you've made it to the hook shank. Now, wrap a couple more solid wraps around the original tie-in pint of the hair and it will be good to go. I also usually use a small drop of cement on the hair butts after trimming.

Kelly.
