Tips for Boa Yarn Leech
By Rick Zieger

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
