I tied them with embroidery floss from walmart costs .35$ per color bundle and lasts for ever. Tie lead under the body and taper for a smooth fly. The taper is key. Any color combo in the world will work. If you want to do smaller flies just strip out some of the threads from the floss (usually 6 individual threads) for this one I used 4 of the six for each color. I used the overhand knot method (kinda time consuming).
