Also what kind of thread are you using? Ultra thread 70 denier will give you a smooth body and lays flat. It is the thinnest ultra thread out there.

Very nice of you guys to try and help. He just doesn't get it. Not sure how he doesn't but you guys are wasting key strokes

You sold two dozen so two orders? Or 24 orders?

Whomp, instead use small or x-fine wire for the butt. The BEST solution would be a single wrap of red tinsel or floss. It'll keep it all nice n slim to boot. And for the aforementioned advise, sage stuff man. The thread should start at about the 50% to 25% of the bend on the 200R hooks.

Tang, Oyey..... we need to get the old crew back together for a day on the water.

^^^ That is super wise regarding the tinsel or floss. Your taper improved, Whomp. The head is way less lumpy. The standard to strive for is for your thread knot circumference to not exceed that of the bead. The easiest way to achieve this is to leave the part of the shank directly behind the bead completely bare through the entire tie so that it is devoted exclusively to the whip finish. Craven calls this the index point (it's in that golden book )

Silent, I haven't fly fished a river since early Spring. I think I got up to one high lake this year It's shameful shit. I've been failing fantastically at catching northern all year.

Failing isnt possible without trying lol A for effort ! Ive been in the same boat last 2yrs, might have fished a dozen times vs 100x in years previous. Is there even a high lake you haven't fished ??
