Re: fly tying tip,,,
I've done that too, Ard,,esp when I get my tailing just right,,,I'll put just a wee bit on the butts ,,wait,,then wrap a couple more times before dubbing or quilling. Sometimes they fall just right,,but,,,now and then after I fuss with tailing on a really tiny fly,,I just dont want things to change and have to fuss with them again. I'm learning pretty good how to use my left thumb and 'spread backwards as i warp forwards',,and getting pretty good at a decent splay so they ride right on the water. The little trick you told me bout a few extra wraps to help splay them works wonders too.
