Default Re: Calf tail fouled on hook?

Dan is right , bucktail is the best for Clousers due to its stiffness. With that said I tie Clousers with a variety of materials even Antron . If you have ever used Antron you know it has a habit of catching on everything sort of like a mesh netting. The solution to this or any other material that wraps the hook is a high tie.
Basically all this involves is after securing your material to the front do several wraps of thread around the material at the base and then finish with several wraps behind the material . This will keep it up and away from the hook point and the fly still looks the same in the water.
