    there is the reference to the head cement.
    a little tip, go to your wife/girlfriend/partner's sewing kit, get the thinnest needle.
    Stick the one end in a peice of corck and use the thin point section for the head cement applicator.
    The very thin needle, holds a lot less head cement, varnish, Sally hansen.
    You might have to apply it twice, but thats it.
    You will very seldom block the eye of the hook.

    Try it, you will thank me if you are using one of those thick head cement needle applicators. But then again, you dont have to thank me

    Ah Korrie, thank you for this thread. Nearly in tears by the end of the SBS. All so true. There are also wonderful things you can do with beads ..., Oh yes, also completed flies and pets

    Aaahh come on Fresh.

    That was very "tounge in cheek" and a brilliant post by Korrie. Thanks Korrie.

    I have 10 thumbs on my hands and can still tie a fly or 2 that catch fish.

    It's like everything else in life, if you really WANT it, then perservere and practise. My first 10 flies ended in the bin.

    Look at the yellows thread and you will see that ICStuff got 2 yellows on hirst first ever self tied fly.
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.
