Here is a tying tip I will shared with you, showing how to thread Antron
onto a needle. The technique is called "Lock Wrap onto a Needle".
Not only does it thread the Antron, but will lock it onto the needle,
for a secure thread.
Thread a loop of thin thread (6/0, or 8/0 ect) thru
the eye of the needle.
Then thread your Antron thru the loop.
Then pull the loop thru the eye of the needle.
Once the Antron is thru the eye of the needle,
wrap it over the sharp end of the needle,
and tighten the Antron. This allows for a longer
length of Antron.
Please check out the Fly Tying Section, on the
Bulletin Board, on FAOL too.
If you have any questions, tips, or techniques; send them along.
Someone else thought up most of this material before we did,
they just forgot to tell anyone about it. Or else we just
forgot about it, while learning something else. Let us
share with each other, all the things we know!
