Mayfly Tails

As I strive to tie more Tricos, I’ve been struggling with putting on split tails. Thankfully, I found the video up top from Dakota Angler & Outfitter.

I’ve been looking for a technique that works. So I’ve tied a few up and it works really well. I’m using micro-fibbets rather than natural feathers.

So, a geeky post, but for those of you who tie flies, I thought the video might be helpful. Note that the Dakota team also posts some great videos on Euro-nymphs. I tied my first ones using their videos, and they caught a pile of trout.
