Spun bodies still perfect

Post by ForumGhillie » Thu Dec 02, 2021 4:47 pm

I pulled out some spun body cards I created 2 Winters ago using William Anderson's Clark Spinning Block. These were made using William Bailey's awesome wax, hare's mask, and Pearsall's Gossamer silk thread. They are still perfect and do not untwist when taken off the cards.

Beautiful fly! It shows why Leisenring’s method is so excellent. Same goes for William’s spinning blocks.

Thanks everyone.

Tying with these pre-done spun bodies I had created reminded me how much I like Australian opossum fur, especially the reddish tones. Makes very buggy looking bodies.
