PULL WING CASE FORWARD AND TIE-OFF
|1. Grasp wingcase with right hand.|
|2. Pull forward between any hackle or legs depending on the fly. On some flies, you may want to trim hackle on top as with a Montana stone, march brown, if you have palmered a hackle across thorax.|
|3. Hold wingcase with good tension as you make a loose wrap of thread.|
|4. Notice how wingcase is still straight forward. You may want to angle it toward you a little so that when we tighten thread, thread torque doesn't pull case material to far side of shank.|
|5. Tighten thread. Let the thread pressure bring the wingcase material down to the hook shank, this keeps material in a neat bundle on top of shank. Maintain thread tension and add 4 or 5 more wraps.|
|6. Cut excess wingcase close to thread wraps.If you cut your thread, don't cuss me, I just work here!
You are now ready to Whip Finish.
