Okay, my creations are starting to look good - thanks in part to some encouragement I got here. Now for another question - which is the "right" way to wrap - front to back or back to front? I usually start wrapping from the front. Thanks for the help-
Thanks Ralph. I am just tying clouser-type flies right now - nothing fancy. I get nice results by tying in some 8-9 inch lengths of krystal flash, with half hanging in front of the eye. Then I tie in some barbell eyes & bucktail hair. I finish it off by bending back the flash from in front of the eyes, over the bucktail hair. I'm happy with it - I'm sure it will catch.
Hi Steve try this one. Start with 2 1-2in hachle fethers, then a few strands of flash, Eyes(I use Sections of beadchain so it don't sink so fast)then bucktail in front and tye over the eyes. That's a killer teaser in green/white,black/purple, white/tan , and all white. good luck
