Default Re: Material for Sucker spawn : Angora yarn vs Glo Bug yarn ?

Hi Ben,

I tie my SS's by taking a cut of the angora yarn and separating the three strands so you have 3 pieces from the one cut. For #14's I use all three strands. While I don't tie mine in #12, I would probably stick with the same method I mentioned and use three strands. Sometimes I'll use a different color in the center just to mix it up a bit. For #16's or smaller I only like two strands.

If you can, post some photos of your finished flies.
