In a way I kind of hope everyone says they hate it, cuz I fought that tail fin to the death! Not sure who won either. After I got through with it I wish the tail was about a half inch shorter The tail is a pearl core braid making it stiff enough to stay straight but not too stiff.
Thanks, but i said tell me you hate it! The feather was eventually tied on. I finally got some hemostats and clamped the feathers, one on each side of braid, where i wanted them. And then slowly worked the thread around it. Topped it off with a generous helping of np. I really could have used another hand doing it my way.
FR76 - Every now and then my creative juices spring into action. Dont hold your breath.. It might be a while for the next action!
Wow, that is creative! That tail tied onto a skinny body tube head could be an ideal glass minnow imitator. I'd like to try making a few - what is the product name of the braid and where can I buy some?
