Tips for Measuring Mayfly Tails

During this brief fly tying tutorial, I explain a few parts of the dry fly hook essential in the measurement of tails when tying. From there, I tie the correct length for mayfly tails (the dun is tied and I explain dimensions for the spinner), while also showing a "cheater" that beginning tyers can use until they perfect their methods.

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.
