Default Re: Woven Stonefly

One tip i picked up years ago was to soak the flosses in sugar water and let them dry out and keep them in a carton for future use.
this keeps the floss semi stiff so when you use it it is a bit like using the wire.
each time you bring the floss over give it a slight pull to the rear of the fly as it tightens the floss and packs it neatly creating a perfect segmentation effect.
hope this wee tip helps.
And by the way great looking pattern
