Return thread to hook eye and wind up the herl in touching turns or with a little gap like mine (I put a bit off superglue on top off shank to help the herl stay in place

Wind hackle up and back down the post and tie in (I tie the hackle in by going around the bottom of the post to catch the hackle in place)

Make a dubbing Noddle and wrap in front and behind the post under the hackle,(I do 2 wraps behind the post and then the rest in front)

Whip finish and apply head cement (I put a drop of UV resin on the thread then whip finish and cure the resin when done)

I think the focus is great, but I thing you should use some colored paper for the background. With darker flies lime green, tan, and blue works best.

I meant to but was to busy trying to tie and take pictures at the same time that I forgot :) think my other pictures in the other part of the forum I used green background

Cheers chugbug will definitely give it a read :)

 

Just read it all, that was a good read, my next klinkhåmer (which I also found out is spelt like that and not the way I first spelt it), will hopefully be better. :)
