Default Re: Peacock Herl Tip/Discovery

Thanks FrankB2...
This thread is perfect timing! I'm sitting at work with my fly stuff next to me and decided to make some gnats for this fly swap I'm in. I have some peacock herl sitting here that I purchased last night and wrapped some on a hook just to see how it looked and went up and down the hook 3 times with one strand. It looked good but after reading this I'm guessing this is a no no. I'm going to try some different techniques to see what works for me. I'm winding hackle around the whole thing so this should keep it all together as well (I guess) Thanks guys. Love this forum!

Hey, you're right. Stroking it makes all the difference. (herl that is) LOL
