For awhile I was into tying Compara-Duns. I latched onto Micro Fibetts the minute they were available to use for the split tails. Tying the tails in a V was always a challenge. I used he old ball dubbing trick to spread the fibers but it was time consuming and not all that easy to tie. While I was attending an Oregon Fly Tyers Expo (coming up next month) a gentleman showed us how to tie split tails that was so easy I never forgot the technique. Some of you may be away of this trick but for those who are not aware of the technique, here's how easy it is: You tie in the desired number of tail fibers you wish to use at the desired length. I'm using a lot of fibers for demonstration purposes. Then, you cut a section of tying thread that is the color of the body material. You wrap the thread around the hook bend. Separate the fibers into equal numbers on each side of the thread. Then pull the thread forward to split the fibers into a V. Tie down the splitting thread, whip-finish and cut away the excess. Taaaa Daaaaa Split tail... quick and easy: You probably will use less fibers than I did for the tail but like I said, the numerous fibers were so they'd show up in the photos.
