Default Re: Beginner Fly Tying Assistance, Please

WOW, I really recieved some great info. You guys know some stuff! I did mean to say whip finish and not whip stitch, I apologize for that slip. It makes good sense to add a drop of cement on the first whip finish. Thanks for that tip. I tied some Peacock Black Spyders (sp) a few days ago and they came out surprisingly well in spite of the 3 little Grandkids I had for assistants. Ha! We have a Hobby Lobby that has many supplies but I think I'll do as suggested and only procure enough (quality) material to tie my chosen pattern until I gain more experience. I really appreciate your advice and patience as I know you guys have probably answered these same questions many times. I am really enjoying the tying and chatting with you fine people.

Regards, Boser
