Its a beautiful tie and faster than Carrie Stevens' method. I thought her point in glueing the wing assemblies was to stiffen the front on the fly so as to mimic the way a baitfish swims - fixed in front with the back two thirds showing all the movement.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
