Default Re: Nymph rig

Since I always mash down the barb of the hook as step one when tying a fly, I have totally given up on tying the second fly to the hook bend of the upper. Way too often the lower fly tippet will slide off the upper hook when casting and sayonara lower fly.

I tie the second fly to the first fly's eye almost exclusively, but on occasion when the spirit strikes me I tie on the first fly with a long tag and tie the second fly to the tag.
