Default Re: Not sure what this is called

1. i would not use guard hairs as tailing fibers. i would use hackle barbs from that brown hackle.

2. a post is usually used to tie parachute style flies that have the hackle wrapped around the post horizontally. a post is not used on the dry fly style you tied.

3. omit the post and just wrap the hackle like you have done above
