Default Re: getting the profile of a nymph correct

I do this: Before wrapping the body, make sure to use less dubbing on the thread end hanging nearest the fly and more towards the center and then less again, so the dubbed thread looks something like this ---:::::::::--- This way, as you tie from the hook bend out, you are using less dubbing on the end and it naturally tapers toward the middle. Hope that helps a bit. Also, I always use less dubbing than I think I need. (Note: I'm no expert- just $.02 worth)
