Fly Tying Tip #114

Never tie in synthetic wing materials by the cut tips.  By choosing half the quantity desired and looping back, you can apply these added flash items in a vertical, horizontal or Temple Dog style for a maximum fullness effect.

By using these creative items in this way you are making sure that they can not pull out and will need far less thread to cover properly.

This fly, I call Black Ice, has individual  strands of Pearl Metz Wing n' Flash tied in and folded back surrounding the center tuft of white buck tail.
