Jack was quite a character. I spoke with him a few times at shows and the times when he was a guest at our club. Once I was lucky enough to have a private tying session with him where he taught me to tie his floating sand eel.


Here's SBS on a basic flat wing. It's missing an important step though.

After you tie in the white bucktail in step 2, you need to add a "pillow" of dubbing over the wraps. This "pillow" helps to hold the hackle stem in place to keep the tail from fouling.
You can use anything for this dubbing. I use the fluff that is stripped from the hackle stem.

I'm interested in that Rip!
I agree I wish I could have met such a unique fellow. Maybe even joined in on a giraffe float trip with him haha.

Diamond hair comes in packs like dubbing. Basically it's really long stands of dubbing like material if I remember correctly. Think you can buy it on john Rohmer's site.

They are pretty simple, but getting the head right is a bit tricky. You can get Diamond Hair from John at HIS WEBSITE. He is VERY prompt with shipping.




I forgot to include a Foam head minnow here. Basically I just took a DHM and added a piece of foam.
