Default Re: Peacock Herl Tip/Discovery

Hmmm...If I lose a fly after two fish I'll be more than happy to retie it! LOL
A lot of mine snag up and never get close to a fishs' mouth. Wire's a great idea and my nymphs are beadheaded so the more weight the merrier. I'm still in the "learning phase" of tying some of these tiny creatures, thanks for the tips.
Hardyreels mentioned the eraser/water/laquer technique. I'm going to try that next.

I haven't lost a fly all summer or fall to a snag. my rivers so shallow I will walk out and get it if i have to lor walk upstream of the hole or downsthream of the hole and it comes loose. lol. I am cheap and don't wanna waste my flies. only lost 1 fly and it was cause I tied a crappy knot. it just flew off lol. thank god I didn't hook up with a fish when it was tied on!!
