Pastortd,

I also love Artic Fox and have been tying with it for 11 years, which is when I first saw an Artic Fox tail, which of course I had to buy. I tie it in by putting some Fleximent (actually I make my own from Sportsman's Goop thinned with Toluene) on the wing mounting base wrap, then mount the Artic Fox wing, cut the butts close, put another drop of Fleximent on the wing butts, and lastly I whip finish over the butts as soon as the wing is tied in. Afterward I coat the fly head with a medium viscosity head cement, this fill in all the thread gaps and gives a nice, smooth, and very durable head and fly. I found this method to be faster than the super glue and just as durable.
