When tying a boa yarn leech. When you wrap the
material to the head, put a little zap-a-gap on
the first few wraps of thread over the yarn. Then
tie it off and use more zap-a-gap. The base of
the yarn seems to be a little stretchy and this
make the fly more durable.
About 25 fish/fly without the zap-a-gap and over
50 with the flies I used the zap-a-gap on. ~ Rick
