    A tip with loading pictures is to use a photo hosting site like photobucket and then you can have full size in the threads. There is a tutorial that flyguide.co.za (mario) did, but I couldn't find it. Maybe some of the other forumers can help?

    Regards

    I have added the link to the hosting SBS on the Tying Sequence thread.

    Chris you're letting the team down, surely you know that braas isnt metal! Think Nkula's right though

    The only tip I can give you is too use a slightly bigger size chennile and to pull the previous strands back towards the tail before each consecutive wrap of chennile. This helps traps less of the chennile fibres and gives the fly a bit more movement. Another tip, but you might have done it, is too pinch off the marabou rather than cut it - its not critical but just results in a more natural looking fly.

    Jocko,

    Adrian did not cut off the tail section to shorten, but the marabou on the shank of the hook.

    Please excuse my ignorance, but WHY!!? Of course I know that brass is not a metal, it is an alloy, which obviously won't corrode like metal. So, why not use brass?

    Well for starters, i've never seen brass used on a saltwater fly, have you.

    You have a point there, but I thought you were refering to something corrosive when you mentioned metal. You obviously mean metal alloy, or stainless steel. My apology...I had a slight brain fart! Happens at my age.
