I tied up a few BWO hackle stackers, some glass-bead bodied caddis pupae, and a few crease flies and poppers.

Thanks Larry. The trick was to watch the video and then keep tying them till I get it right. By spring I will have a giant pile of them, but they oughta be pretty nice by then.

awesome tie dan. i noticed the collar on your diver is at a perfect 90 degree angle to the trimmed head. how do you do that, mine always end up way past 90 degrees. am i trimming the collar too far back? should i make the trimmed head shorter?

its kind of hard to see in this pic, but you can sort of see how the collar isnt at 90 degrees.

The way I get it to stand up in the middle like that is to pack the heck out of it. In fact I bent a hook packing it the other day. Mighta been pushing a bit to hard on that one. If you notice how compact the hair is on the front of the head, there isn't much room for the hair to do anything but stand straight up. Do you have a packer? I have aso been using the tube from a ball point pen to push the hair back while I work the thread back forward of the hair, and get the first wrap on the shank. It's actually a great tool. I use the writting end as a tiny packer and half hitch tool, and the other I put sticky backed velcro, hook side, as a dubbing picker. One trick I found to get it tight is while you push the hair back, take a couple of tight wraps between the packer and the hair. Then half hitch right against the hair, put some head cement on the half hitch, and then pack the heck out of it again. I use tough thread also, Gudebrod GX2 and Kevlar. That way I can use a pretty good hunk of hair and get the thread down good. I found a second video showing stacking. It's mostly fishing and talking about a guy named John Fehnel. He's the guy that tied the fly I bought and inspired me to figure this stacking thing out. In the brief bit they show him stacking, you get a good view of how he gets the patterns. Once you tube gets done doing whatever it is they are doing and I can look at my history, I'll post it.

They are still doing maint. on You Tube, but I found it anyway. He starts the fly about 4 min in.

I tied some of these, but now I am working on bass sized poppers.
