very close. a few suggestions. i only taper the tail about 3/4 to an inch. and when wrapping backward on the tail count the wraps and return using the same number. having different amounts will lead to unraveling. rich mc

The hook is a TMC 8089 size 2. Hope to use them this weekend. Going to hit the shenandoah, hope the storms stay away.

Good luck and tight lines on the Shenandoah. My wife & I took a vacation to the Valley in the Fall of 2010. Visited a lot of the Civil War sites. Took our fly rods and fished both forks of the Shenandoah based upon the advice of Harry Murray. Had a blast. Beautiful country with a lot to do.
