I was at the local "shop" today gettin a few things and showing some recent ties. I was inspired by a tie left by Mr. Nelson, I really loved the profile and movement, it also weighs next to nothing. Thanks for the inspiration, we gotta fish these this spring.

I had to whip up something similar for my quiver.

bucktail high tie

white cashmere goat

ice wing

uv polar chenille palmered along shank

finn raccoon spun in a loop and wound

marabou collar doubled and palmered

Hey Ian


Nice rendition...looks good


I tied 2 dozen at Somerset using different Color schemes


As a time saving measure I use Finn or fox on a zonker strip... 1 to 3 turns depending on desired fullness....makes for a cleaner easier and bigger "prop " for the wound marabou than making a loop


You can also play with the relationship of length of fibres between marabou and fur

Makes for interesting tapers or not


we gotta fish definitely or at least spin up some bugs Ian


Poor josh...feelin for him
