Default Re: Rainy day at the vise

Thanks, thats quite a compliment for a newbie like me.
I start 1/2" from the eye and alternate tieing material to the top and bottom of the hook. I tie in flash before each tie on top of the hook.
I found something called craft fur plus, the fibers are 3-4" long. I finish them off with some clear PlastiDip along the bottom from the hook bend to the tail. It keeps the material from fowling around the hook.

P.S. I think the eyes make the fly.

Good people and excellent service.
