You make it look easy. Now I got to by some 1-2-3 yarn and CDC feathers...

 

Thanks for helping me spend my money, Terje. :D

 

Thanks Ray. I`m sorry to say that the 1-2-3 ready yarn is out of stock. A friend of mine got hold of this years ago, and now i only have 10cm left :(

The good news is that he will introduce a new type of yarn in October that is gonna be a great substitute for the 1-2-3 ready yarn.

 

Polyyarn or polychenille will do the same job, but i`m certain that you can find some kind of yarn that looks like this in a store that sells yarn for knitting.

They often have lots of interesting stuff that is perfect for flytying.

Did you just twist that body and then loop it back to the original tie in point to achieve the furl?

 

I like this method as I am always twisting and doubling them in my hands to furl. this is certainly easier. Thanks

Hi Ridleyffo!

I´m not to familiar with the word "furl". Sorry but my english sometimes struggles when it comes to some phrases and words.

 

What i do is as you said, twist the body and then loop it back to the original tie point. Then it kind of spins around it`s own body and makes a perfect twisted body on flies like this and also on swimming pupas. The 1-2-3 ready yarn is very bugsy/wooly yarn that becomes busy looking.

 

That`s the best i can do in explaining at the moment :D

Hi Terje and Ridleyffo, Yes that method is commonly called a furled extended body. I do them both ways, one side tied in or twisting, furling and tying in. I do it off the fly when I am adding tails to the body for an extended mayfly.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers, Futzer.

Thanks a lot, guys :)

The 1-2-3 ready yarn is not available in stores. It`s a yarn that a friend of mine sells on private basis, so it´s only available for Norwegian flytiers at the moment.

 

Terje!
