I just used a standard loop hook, but I'm gonna experiment with "splitting the thread" next time I set down to tie another batch.
I wasted $20.00 worth of Angel hair trying to figure out how to get the proportions right but I finally learned how to do it without wasting so much. It's something you have to see done...can't explain it in writing, or I'd share.
It's worth it though, it's a kick-ass fly!

Using a 3' dubbing board I make loops about 2' long and can do 6 to 7 flies with it.
I'll cut the angel hair 2"-2 1/2" for the loop and no cutting of it once it's put on.
Also after tying in the marabou I'll wrap the rest of the hook shank with it for a underbody.
Try the color Black Light. I'll use this for night time Steelhead and Salmon for sure.
