Beast time

It's been Beast time all the time this winter. Did a small article about them on my english blog that I haven't updated in years and ended up tying a chit load of Beasts in the process... :)

 

Such a addictive pattern. You just can't tie just one!

jabster -

Those look great - I have been thinking of tying some of these - would love to see one in person. I'll trade a big mackerel pattern that I've been working on.

Looks like you used an extension. Where did you get the mono straights? I'm going to start tying some. I had a difficult time finding straight mono. A Club member came to rescue and gave me some straight mono.

FishHawk. Great looking ties.

Fishawk II You cut your own off a spool. Get some 60-100lb whatever your comfortable with ( no matter the extension gets stiff once it's wrapped , glue material) cut all your extensions , 6-10inch , again whatever your comfortable spinning the bobbin on or looking to extend the fleyes size to. Take all your cut extensions and pack into a straw so they are firmly in place and somewhat straight now.. Take the packed straw OR PVC tubing , anything you can fill tight with the extensions AND drop into a pot of boiling water for just a minute or two. Take the packed straw , or PVC tubing and run under cold water... The extensions will come out pin needle straight..post-53127-0-87558600-1487377135.jpgpost-53127-0-14705700-1487377148.jpg
