More Yak Hair Tying

I decided to take a run up to see a shop I never been in before, American Anglers in Salem N.H. Not a bad outfit. Prices weren't bad on most things. What was amazing though was I found some Yak Hair Striper Flies like the ones I'm trying to tie lately (see "$6.00 Fly" thread). They had a price tag of $12.00! Now, when the veterens of tying say you never save money tying, I start to doubt it when I see I'm tying $12.00 flies!

Anyway, I'm getting the recipe down on them Yakkers. LAst night I had to start over after getting 1/3 done. I realized I needed some bucktail on the back of the shank <i><b>before </i></b>the ezbody spreader goes on. And I found I needed to leave more space between the spreader and the hook eye for tying down stuff.
Interesting things you learn. Soon I should be able to crank them out. After a dozen I can move on to some Pollock for the Nahant and Rockport cliffs. Then the bunnies for the cape, then.....Help!
