Default Re: fly recipe???

Hi MacFly once again.
I was itching to try the new Vise so I tied up three Flies,also copied the pic from the Book,it was really a task trying to wind the six hackles,especially on a # 6 Hook I gave that idea away,I then matched them in pairs,which I've done before,I finally went back to a long single hackle,which doesn't turn out as bulky,which I've used many times before,my trick is to attach a medium set of Hackle Pliers to each feather,which makes winding the Hackle easier,& the Fly looks better.
I'll try again to post the results again,I've printed Frank's recipe out.
Brian.
