    Allan, step by step is well done as in the book. Now it's easier. I have not had a black cock, and even this is not bad.

    The head cement is Wapsi lacquer, one coat soaks in and seals the silk or thread and when dry apply the top coat for the gloss finish.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I dubbed my grub. I also sometimes get lazy when it's time to switch thread colors. When Using white or cream thread I sometimes run a sharpie marker down the thread to finish the head in the color I want. The marker does not bleed and cut's down on bulk for the head I usually do this just before I tie down the last part of the fly, The hackle in this case.

    That's looking good Joni, if you stay the course through all of the learning steps that Allan is going to show us your last tie will no doubt not be in need of an explanation. I've seen how well you can wrap a hook!

    Here is my grub, I used a Golden Badger feather. The hook is a little too large, Partridge CS10 size 2. I have some size 6's on order, but they have been back ordered so I used what I had on hand.

    Just got home from a trip to the eastern Sierras so I'm playing catch-up. I've read all the posts. Good work everyone (with pictures as well as your flies). I'll apologize in advance for my pictures. I'm using a Sony point and shoot and have zero skills. Here it is:

    Had no materials so I used a TMC200R, bent the eye up (cheater, my bad). Actually looks good in person. OH, the black rear tag. Someone must have tied the hackle back in at the rear while I was away from the vise.

    Looks good from here Jimmie,

    If you or any other participants have questions about any aspect of getting good or better results drop me a PM. I am the official thread sitter while Allan is away.

    One thing I use on my heads now is (sally hansons strengthening top coat) dries in like 30 seconds to a hard shiney finnish. I like it better than the standard sally hansons hard as nails for finishing a fly
