    Wiets, I've tried to find the post, to no avail !

    It went into detail on what qualities one should look for when choosing bucktail. Best bet would be to post a "For attention of Gogga/MCC other Saltwater fly tiers" type thread and ask them. I'm convinced it was one of them.

    Sorry.

    generally the saltwater flies go through a bit of a pounding, especially if you hooking decent size shad, they are going to shred your flies, ok it does'nt even have to be a decent size on. i think the article you are looking for was more in the sense of where on the bucktail to choose the hair from for different applications. The hair closer to the tip of the tail flares less than the hair at the base. when choosing your cut you decide if you want the tail to look "bulky" from flare or a streamlined tail lying flush on the hook shank. this is my own personal trend here and knowing how i go through flies in the salt from hooks rusting eventually and getting snagged, i don't spend top dollar on my bucktail. just do one saltwater flyswop and you see how that tail dissapears being a budget tyer i take what i can get and try fish it expensively .an eg my daughters b/day was on wed she needs new ballet shoes. 1k gone. i'm sure i could have got a busload of more useful fly stuff
    kids come first
    hope i made sense about the bucktail though
