Comments from other fly fishermen

What technique do you use to end up with white thread/silk to do the head and finish, rather than the red you started with? - Posted by on 05/11/2007

In answer to Ant Sharman tie the shoulder as you would do the tail end, that way you end up with white at the head simple. - Posted by on 26/04/2010
