Very nice looking jigs. I'm curious how long would you say it took you to tie them?
Well I didn't time it and don't hurry as much as I use to, but if I don't stop to look at FB or emails or just messing around, I could do these in less than 2 hours, but that is not counting painting the heads. That does count cutting the feathers and doing what it takes to tie them.
It use to take me a little longer o. Some like these because of the flash and how I tie it in, but I have even got a little faster at that. It use to double my tying time and still makes a big difference. I do them as some use the term lateral line type which is just that I make sure I have one piece cut to length and it curves in and not out, then I place it so it ends up right on the side where I want it. Some just fold over a piece of flash and tie it in and I just don't care for that because you don't really control how it lays. It's just my way and I like to do things the way I would want it and I am a bit picky!
