Do you have a bag that looks like this on your bench?
I've been re-teaching myself how to tie hair bugs,so I have a ton of this in my collection bag and was lamenting on the amount of material that gets wasted when learning to spin deer hair. I also had some maribou scraps from some Jigs I have been constructing. Such a waste.
THEN, an idea popped into my head. Why not try to recycle the materials is some way.
I dropped a SS #4 hook in the vice,because thats what I had out working on. White thread in the bobboi,so I used that too.
I grabbed a maribou scrap and tied it on as a tail.
I grabbed a big wad of scrap har and rolled it around in my hand until it was the general shape of a bundle of deer hair. I made the first bundle small to see if it would work,
I clipped the ends off of the bundle.
This stuff is NOT going to spin like premium deer hair fo you have to twist and finesse it until it sort of spins
Keep adding scraps
Trim to whatever shape you want.
And now you have a "Junk Fly. This was a lot of fun messing with. Have some fun, get creative...Waste Not,Want not!
