kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Frog flies always make me smile. It's no judgement of tying quality; but they always do. Very good work.

It's kinda both I believe, just stack short amounts of EP fibers around the shank like you'd do deer hair. I tie approx 3 clumps on top of the shank and 2 or 3 of the belly color underneath. Stroke the fibers back and again a next bunch. After that start trimming the whole thing with a sharp scissor

I noticed EP also has shorter shanks, I want to give those a try next time. these were medium sized I believe.
Thanks for the deets.

Some recent phleye-ties. Basically a sar-mul-mac ripoff with 2 exceptions: (a) dub-clumped head instead of chenille & (b) SF blend instead of bucktail
