  2. I'm reading through "Fleye Designs" and Bob mentions wetting flies a lot. The end result is a nice looking tapered fly. I am wetting my flies with warm water and hang drying them, but the fibers don't lay back nicely like Bob's. Is there something I'm missing? Should I be soaking the flies? I just run them under hot water for a few seconds.
  3. I am fairly new to tying flies and I have been tying lots of Clouser minnows to prep for the white bass run. I ventured off from tying a sparse pattern and tried to do a thick, perch clouser pattern. I did a base with bead chain eyes, a small clump of florescent orange, then a bit of olive green on top of that before flipping it over and tying in flash and another set of olive green. Towards the end of putting it all together with the last set of hair, the thread started to slip and rip from other parts that had been finished. Is there a way to prevent this? I had to untie a bunch of it and tie the last clump of hair further back to get it to all tie in together and I used a lot of head cement because I was unsure of how it will hold up in the water. I have attached a pic for reference of the end fly.
  4. This video is a bit different, its more of a comparison between two materials. The synthetic bucktail, and real bucktail. From my opinion, I think they both have unique properties and differences, so much so that I really think the should be different named materials all together. Faux bucktail is somewhat misleading as its not exactly the same as the real stuff. In some ways its better, and in some ways its worse. For certain applications it could be better, and for certain applications it could be worse. So thats my conclusion. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 in size 2 Eyes: Lead Painted Dumbell Eyes in large and red Thread: Danville 210 Flat Waxed in White Material: Real and Faux Bucktail in white/olive Head Cement: Solarez "Bone Dry"
  5. Everyone that ties regularly knows how to use buck tail , and prepare it properly. However those that are new into fly tying might not know the simple but crucial steps in preparing buck tail before tying it in. I make these tips and tricks type of video's for beginners, so keep that in mind when watching it. The video is under a minute long, so it won't take too much out of your day. haha https://youtu.be/glU67iVvkc0
