MW ... I've said this to some of the other realistic tiers here, and it applies to you, too !!!

 

You can't stick a hook through a real bug, and then say you tied a fly !!!

Bimini ... you don't taper the mono, you build up UV or other resin on the mono, if I remember correctly.

Hi,

 

@ Streambum4trout: no, it's made only for Display :-)

@ Bimini15 & Mikechell: what Mikechell wrote is correct and work well, no doubt... but i went another way. I cut the Mono to shape with a Scalpell :-)
