Default Re: Novice tyer looking for critque/pointers

I do see what you are talking about Bigjim. Thanks for explaining that out for me. I hadn't really paid much attention to that transition area.

I never thought about trying it with a hair wing. Can you do that with pretty much any feather wing style fly and just swap it out for a hair wing? Also, would you just go with straight white bucktail or would you mix in any other colors to give it some depth?

I have read about using the marabou to give the fly more action in the water. Are there any special techniques with using marabou for the wings or to you pretty much size it up as needed and tie it in?

Sorry for the rapid fire questions there. Thank you all again for all the helpful comments and pointers. They are all very appreciated!
