    Okay Hans. Counter-wrapping the rib this time? How do you decide when to counter or not? Just asking.

    Oh and I should have looked on your site about Tup's dubbing and stated such in my post within that thread. Thanks for keeping all the great information in your site.

    Cheers.

    Sound question. In this case, with this body material, the pitch of body wrap and rib would have been too similar, which calls for reversing the direction of the ribbing turns.

    Hans,

    Just out of curiosity I have a request.
    I wonder how that same pattern would look if you tied in the rib at the bend and the body material at the thorax, wrapped the body toward the bend, secured it with the rib and wound the rib toward the thorax? The 'pitch' would be different and the angle of the rib would be reversed. I just have a feeling that the result would be 'nicer'. Would you mind trying that and posting the result?

    Cheers & Thanks for your patience.

    Have a look. If you still want me to do the Pardo & Chestnut - I can/will.

    Hi Hans,

    Yes, I know that you've tied the way I mentioned above. Very nice use of mallard for the body of the Urk Naylor. I'm not a fan of counter-ribbing and don't care for the look. Also, if the tier isn't careful, the counter-rib can easily loosen at the tie down point and slide all over the body. JMHO and the trout probably don't care. The reason I asked you to tie it was because you could do it with the exact same hook and materials and then photo them side by side for comparison.

    Cheers,

    Allan

    Great video on the Usk Naylor. I'm curious as to why the color purple. Does purple stimulate strikes?
    Trout don't speak Latin.
