    Nice tie!

    What's the head? That a bead?
    "I knew a tier once. One time he was holding a lump of cat hair he found on his couch, sort of twirling it about his fingers, tugging at it. I asked, what in the hell are you doing man? He looked startled, ashamed. But I knew what he was thinking. right then and there I decided to just buy my fly's thankyouverymuch." ~ cwg

    Not much need to work on improving that! Just remember what you did and do it to all your wets.

    Slinger,

    Great looking tie, beautiful proportions and attention to detail.

    Boreal,

    That's not a bead, it's a beautifully finished thread head that looks like it's been lacquered with several coats. Hopefully Flyslinger will share his method.

    First 'attempt?' Hell's Bells Man, that was better than my last attempt and I've been playing with floss and feathers since I was 8'ish years old. DON'T ask how old I am now.
