Bill I posted a part of your fly. I still have no idea how to attach marabou to chenille. Can you or anyone explain this process to me? Thank you!!

Hi Jon. You melt the very end of the chenille to get a small point while you taper the chenille with the flame. This hardens the last 1/16” inch or so of the chenille. Insert the tapered end of the chenille in the jaws of your vise so that just the melted/hardened section is exposed in the front of the jaws. Attach your tying thread with multiple wraps of thread so the thread is touching or almost touching the vise jaws. This “little exposed tab” of melted chenille is stiff enough to allow you to attach the marabou tail as if it were a very short section of a hook shank. Let me know if you want some photos via an email if this isn’t clear.

Just a photo of what it looks like right before you begin tying. Photo of the chenille in the vise should be all I need. Thanks Bill!

Landon, it all depends on where you are. States have different rules. Here in Wisconsin the season closes October 15th and re-opens to catch and release only on January 1st. Here in Wisconsin we can fish all through the winter. The rules are no harvest and no live bait.

Check your local regulations. If you live in Wisconsin you have your answer. Lol!
