    Cheers Kimo much appreciated, also just seen the message, thanks for the video, couldn't do anything on the site earlier as it was running so slow and giving me errors everytime I tried to post a message, thanks again will try tying these up :)

    Eraser Scud Olive Dk

     

    Trying something with the lighting. Less of a rim light and I diffused the main light more.

    More documentary style, less dramatic.

    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)
