The Borger Double Hitch in The Fly Tying Bench Posted September 5, 2012 · Report reply Here's the link I tie my sparkleminnows using this finish, at the head. No glue needed...cheaper. No whip finish tool...cheaper. NEVER, EVER, comes undone...better. So why whip finish? You got me! I've had people ask me how I finish my sparkleminnow, for a very long time. I never really knew how to answer them. I learned this finish from a Gary Borger video, a LOOONG time ago. But, I use it on everything! It seems to be a very well guarded secret! In fact, I'll put it up against a whip finish, for simplicity, and durability, any day of the week! My heart felt thanks out to Gary Borger, for this!
