Re: Lime Green Rockworm

The hackle is tyed in by the stem, right behind the eye of the hook. The tying thread hangs at the back of the thorax, after the herl is wrapped.

Re: Half Stone Variant

Those are cute little buggers.

I think Mr. Smith would appreciate them very much.

Re: Natural Hare's Ear + and Partridge
