I've been tying some "fancy flies" for a trip to Penns Creek and the Eastern Green Drake hatch. I've filled my fly box with good "guide flies" and am now making some pretty, extended-body green drake spinners using a needle to build up a body out of dubbing. One problem, when you try to slide the body off the needle, its often destroyed in the process. New trick, "grease" the needle with dubbing wax before tying each body. Works like a charm.
