I used to tie a lot of flies for trout and other warm water species but haven't done it for a while. I have been getting into more saltwater fishing this year both using conventional gear and fly rod. I would like to get back into tying and would like to start by creating some saltwater teasers and replacing some of the hooks on my AVAs with both hackle and bucktail dressed hooks. I started last night on adding bucktail to a VMC Siwash open eye hook but ran into an issue at the end. When I tried to whip finish using a whip finish tool, I ran into trouble getting around the large open eye. How do you guys usually finish off your larger saltwater files?
