My website is fly fishing. Now I'm going to bring the two pieces of peacock curl over the top of the fly. Hold them into position and tie them in as a crackle back with 3,3, or 4 thread wraps. And cut away the waste. Now I'm going to use the security wrap 3 wraps using a metallurgic wood type finisher to secure the material to the hook shank as we move on to the next step. I'm going to move the bobbin cradle back into position, lay the bobbin in the bobbin cradle, take my hackle plier, go back and get the furnace saddle hackle. I'm going to wrap it forward. 1,2,3,4,5 wraps. Remove the thread from the bobbin cradle. Wrap it over the saddle hackle with 3 full wraps to secure it to finish the fly we are going to cut away the wast saddle hackle. Use our metallurgic type wood finisher to finish the fly head. 1,2,3,4,5 and our fly is finish and ready to fish.
