    Wow. Talk about dexterity. I thought he'd use superglue to finish off the fly - when he picked up the whip finisher I was totally amazed!

    Agreed, you can't go wrong with peacock herl. I tied it on a 2x long hook and used Flex-floss for legs.

    Another option is to use a glue gun to run a heavy bead of glue along the hook and then roll it in the sand. You can shape it with your fingers as it cools.
