Still envious of skills I don’t possess Craig. Both the Traditional and non-Traditional are beautiful.

@trublubug thank you bill. Waiting on some dee hooks coming in. Gonna try out dee flys, kinda goes against the grain as adore traditional speys of Scotland.

But your skills will dispel the reservations Craig. Looking forward to the Dee ‘s.

Craig, I wanted to ask you if you wind the teal throat and coax the fibers downward, or do you tie it in as a “beard”? I’m hoping to attain your “perfection” some day (likely never to happen).

@trublubug yes bill wind it on, wee tip, strip one side off the hackle fibres and tie it by the tip that way it lays nice and not all over the place 👍🏻
