Default Re: Hackle Questions?

Thanks for those videos. They helped a lot in showing what I was messing up. I think I am holding the hackle wrong when turning it around the body and it is thus twisting. This is causing the "bind" where the hackle doesnt open up the way it is supposed to. I'll try some more tonight and see if it is better. I've been working on a mini-trout pattern on a size 12 hook. When I get a digital camera I'll take some pics and post them. Tonight will hopefully be high visibility dry flies to use in place of an indicator.
