  2. All these years of tying, and I have always tied it off forward. Weird how easy it is to get stuck on something like that.
  3. .Thanks you Hans. The one fly I have never mastered now there is hope.
  4. Thank you that is a great tip
  5. Thank you sir!
  6. Wow. So simple, yet totally blew my mind. Thanks for sharing. Ill definitely try that method.
  7. Who wooda thunk it. I too, have always tied to the front. Not any more. I just wish my wraps of wire were as neat as his. I seem to have a visual problem when wrapping.
  8. Thanks all. I hope you will find the method useful.

    Please remember, it can be used for tying off many diverse materials, not just ribbing material.

    For example, here I use it to tie off a wire core dubbing brush. Have a look at the video, and then also visualize how it would end up looking in the event of a dubbing brush tie-off pointing forward.
