Awesome. Thanks for the tips. Since this was my first real try I was hoping to get some feedback. I really appreciate it.
I am fond of the nickel hooks. I like the fact you can skip the tinsel underbody. One less thing to worry about and it does improve the tying time. Plus I am a sucker for anything silver.
Having trouble locating the stretch nylon you mention. Will try another shop this weekend.
Thanks again and will be posting some more in the coming weeks as I work on refining my technique.
