Not a Fly but a STYLE-Peacock Herl on a Dubbing Loop

Peacock herl is a great body material. But it is not durable. A fish can get a tooth into the herl and it breaks and unravels. End of the fly. With the use of a dubbing tool we shall make a peacock herl chanile .

There are several of these on the market you can buy. This one is made with a paper clip and the end of a mechanicl pencil. Bend the paper clip in half and slide it thru the  pencil. Fold the ends over this will be used to hook into the loop.

Place hook in the vice and dress the hook, starting at the eye wrap thread to the bend of the hook.

Take 5 or 6 herls trim even and bind the material down to top of hook shank.

Wrap the herl around the thread all the way to the bottom of the herl.

With your thumb and finger grasp the herl and the thread, hold, and take the thread up and over the hook shank.

 

Then over the herl and thread.

Then around the hook shank towards the front of the hook.

Hook the dubbing tool thru the loop in the thread and start twisting. This will create the herl chanile. Then wrap to the front of the hook, tie down and clip off excess.

This is the basis for my Naybee,and is the most durable way to use peacok herl for the body.

Good idea. I've been using that technique to tie prince nymphs. It sure makes the fly more durable.

Thanks
