Had to give it another shot, overcooked the taper a touch I think, I'm still happy.
Same time, and try to keep it all on the top of the shank. Its alot to keep up there. I take a loop around the bunch of barbs, take tension then put it on shank. Modified soft loop if you will. I'll see if I can post another pic later how that looksYou tying both sides in or one at a time ?
Come on now, let's not exaggerate! Can't be more than maybe, 1639 barbs in there!!Doesn't it always in pictures? Dude is compressing like 1786 barbs in each wing there, nothing easy about that! Especially to keep the taper in the wing tips. Very nice Matt!
