behind the boobies

If you burn the hole behind the boobies, you are burning through the thread wraps that hold the Elk hair. And since it is an extra step in the tying process and a bit of a bitch sometime to thread the leader in through the bottom, maybe a simpler solution would be just to thread the leader straight through the tube and then throw a couple of half hitches behind the boobies? I'll try that and report back.

Thanks,
