NICE WORK. I have found that it was to my benifit when tying teasers to go from 3/0 thread down to 6/0. What it did was help me shape my heads better and allowed for more wraps on the head. If you use flexement with every tie in or material before, you will come out with a fly that is good and strong. allow the fly to dry and coat twice or even three times with Hard as nails and you will be able to build the head perfectly.

You lost me eith the 3/0 and 4/0threads . I know on flies a thinner thread is used so you dont have build up

I use only 200-240 Denier thread's !!!Real holds my hairs tight ..

Yes you can borrow some of my Idea's , but i see them on a shelf some where me and Mr Bash will pay you a visit . Mr Bash is my 80 yr old Axe Handle .. Keep up the good work .What head cement are you using ?

as far as head cement i have tried the stuff that came in the first kit i bought and nail polish and super glue, now its model cement. not sure which will work best so we'll see. also been tying some tail hooks for some plugs i made cant wait to try them out. and you will NEVER see my stuff in a store. not how i operate. fundraisers and tournament door prizes is about all you'll see. or the newbie i meet on the beach will usually go away with a small starter kit. plug, teasers and maybe a T-hex. thats how i started and i want to pay it forward so to speak. i just enjoy making the stuff. and it keeps me home at nite.

whitey not sure if its waterproof but we'll see. i figure its dry and i'm covering it with epoxy anyway so who knows. yeah i want to tie some tails for the metals just dont have enough hours in the day. want to try some dark colors for some metals and see if it helps. i want to get away from the red green and white its boring.
