Default Quick Question on Goose Biots

Greetings, All!!!

Attempting to self-learn a new tie... It calls for two goose biots for the tail. When a recipe calls for a biot, is this multiple barbs (forming a small "bunch") or is it a single barb?

I haven't found narative that describes it well anywhere, and the photos that I've seen are inconclusive.

Thank you for any assistance!

You only need to use & match two single Biots with The Shiny side out as they are quite thicker than Rooster Hackles,some say to use Biots of opposite sides of The Feather.
Google"tying The copper john" where you will get the idea how it's done.

Thank you, Sir! I've been experimenting, waiting to see if someone answered, and had come to that conclusion with "some" degree of confidence!

Appreciate the verification, Brian!! TY!!

Harry Mason has a FANTASTIC tutorial on the use of biots and how they are applied to get different results- I'd recommend ANYONE interested to check it out.

t r o u t f l i e s . c o m

He covers what they are, where to find them, how to use them, how to tie a flat body with them and how to tie a ribbed body.
