Ah, but the term "wrap" implies that you must then return the thread towards you in order to make the next wrap.

Haven't tried raccoon but I love squirrel tail streamers.

Agree.  Whether it's a red band on my "Red Neck Crappie Jigs", a red or orange throat on a streamer, red is a good accent.

In Topic: Technique question- soft hackles and weighted line

Today, 12:25 PM

I never weight my soft hackles themselves (bead or lead).  But I do like to fish a weighted nymph along with a soft hackle.

I said it was good for discussion.  It has generated a good deal of that, some interesting stats are being tossed in.  I just also pointed out that there is no way of logically coming up with anything other than a WAG. 


As for flytire's question about thread wraps, unless you have the eye of the hook facing you or away from you, everyone always does both.
