Its really not that tough....just time consuming with all the tie in steps.....I have found that I make up all the weighted underbodies with the tails in place first and do about a dozen or so up ahead of time....then I do the woven part of the abdomen on all 12.....then I finish by tying off each fly with the thorax.....it's certainly faster when you do up a dozen flies and complete them in stages.

My two cents worth
