    Kelly,

    Can you remember where you learned that tip?

    I learned it from Harry Mason who recently passed. Harry was a wonderful fly tier who loved sharing his techniques and I'd like to acknowledge him here. RIP Harry.

    I learned it from his Copper John tutorial at step 23.

    His tying instructions are still up for those who want to visit it.

    Regards,

    Silver, while I pride myself on having a fairly good memory I can't recall where I learned this. It may have been from the late Shane Stalcup from his book Mayflies Top to Bottom.

    Yeah, no doubt Harry Mason was a GOOD guy and a GREAT fly tyer.

    His tutorials have some of the most valuable information on the net, talk about a guy who made some masterful SBS on patterns AND techniques! I'm hoping his Son continues to honor his memory and keeps the site alive.

    I miss my friend Harry =( I miss talking to and tying with him.

    Kelly,

    Just wanted to say thanks again for the SBS on this particular technique. It has been a real game changer for me. I've experimented with it this week and will try to get some shots up over the weekend. It always amazes me when I learn a new technique that can have such a profound effect on a finished fly. This certainly has been one of those.

    Thanks again!

    Dear Kelly,

    That is a really extremely great explanation and you made awesome pictures. I am sure that a lot of forum members -and especially the anglers who just start tying flies- will also love this kind of threads.

    THANKS A LOT FOR SHARING
    Best regards from Germany,

    THORSTEN

    Here are a few shots of the same pattern, different sizes and colors.

















    This is a different pattern, it's actually a Two Bit, but I know I'll be using this technique next time I make a run of these ones. I did these legs without using this technique, but they didn't come out as bad as some of the others I tied. BTW, anyone who hasn't fished a Two Bit should tie some up. They are deadly.

    jaybo41, those are excellent! Well done. I'm glad I could share something useful.

    For others who are trying this method for the first time, share your patterns and let others see what you've done.

    I'm going to start another thread to show off some of the fish we caught just this past Saturday. Most were taken on the flashback Pheasant-tail nymph I showed at the first of this thread.
