Hi everyone,

 

I'm very happy that you liked the Black Childer.

 

Edwin, the head is Lagurton Oval tinsel (small) to form the head, tye off with the thread then you take a length of tinsel and wind the tinsel from the eye up the head and whip finish one or two turns to finish at the wing.

I saw Marvin Nolte do this on a Grub Pattern.

 

All the best Davie
