Tie it in like chenille. But on each wrap, sweep the new fibers down the shank so they don't get overwrapped. Then when you are done, use a velcro brush or similar to make the bugger even hairier. Most often, I don't add in a tail, as it would not be found in a mohair leech.
A velcro brush is made from a piece of adhesive hook velcro fastened to a toothbrush that has had its bristles removed. I works great on dubbing and mohair to bring out the best in hairyness.
Fish till ya drop.
Then suck it up
and fish the evening hatch.
Ya that would work too, but might be a little more awkward to handle.
The .22 bore cleaner works great to ruff up dubbing too. I use it on that African Goats Hair dubbing to bust more hairs and give the fly that watery sheath look in the water. Dynomite! :LOVEIT
If you know a dentist...ask to get a drill wire from him. I think they use them for root canals etc...very thin wire with abrasive coating....It works excellent for sticking under ribbing or wire to pull out dubbing.
