Default Re: JP's flies step by step...for beginners.

Looks good gator!

JP a question for you-- it looks like you tied these off behind the hackle and wing? Or do you wiggle the thread through the hackle and tie off at the head?

Either way is fine with me, they look great and are a great match for our many species of "blue wing olives", one or more of which is hatching at some point during the whole season in various sizes from 14-22, and the same steps with different colors can be used to match a lot of mayflies.
