Tape . . . . that's a good idea.

Jay,

You might want to give this a try. The tea bag will give added durability and with this method, it seems like the sky is your limit.

Let me know how it works out, I've wanted to try this for awhile now.

I will leave the teabag jokes alone...... The method is a good one, its the same as the tape, just with the tape you dont need glues.

Someone on that site was whining about the adhesive failing and teabag dissolving. I guess they were using water based adhesive? Jeez.

Too much work.

Tie a Usual, omit the tail and angle hair over body instead of straight up. Dubbing loop with the picked out pieces of fur you didn't use in wing is superawesomefantastic.

Gink when wet.

Fish.

Sound like he wasnt a good teabagger...... Sorry couldnt resist

Water based adhesives dont dissolve in water. (once dry)

As far as the tea bag falling and dissolving, it really would make a difference with what the tea bag was made of. Some are plastic, but some are organic materials.

Think outside the box. Why, thar's gosh durn more BS than a feed lot up in haer. Or something folksy and stupid like that.

Gink your snowshoe feet. I assure you, rabbits know all about cosmetics testing, and the souls of the rabbit whom gave up these feet would prefer it be smeared across their toes than Revlon lipstick in their eyes.

Uh, oh, he called lefty stupid.

Also, with cdc underwing, squeeze it in a cloth if needed and blow, baby, blow. I sometimes blow on my fly as soon as I release the fish-- kinda like a spaghetti western hero after shooting the bad guy.

I was not kidding:

You know, I fully knew that and sat there and wrote it anyway. Then again I guess it depends on how it drys/cures. Certainly type I glue will dissolve in water when dried, thus the need for II and III.

Anyway, it looks good if it holds up imo.

I have had 20 plus on these and the wing was still in great shape, but i use packaging tape. The trouts teeth tore up the scotch tape ones i tied. If you use packaging tape be the cheaper the better, you dont want thick tape, as it will weigh your fly down.
