Saw the post about grizzly hackle hairdos and pictured a bunch of nice streamers on that lady's head. So I did a little experimentation and color blending and came up with some nice looking streamers I think.
One thing I sorta came up with was to tie in some foam over the spot where I would be clipping the front hook after completing the tie. I had seen some dudes' streamers that my dad brought back from the fly show. Instead of foam, he tied in a loop of mono. I think the foam covers the clipped edge much better though. Before the foam, I would clip and file down the rough edge, a pain in the ass.
