Found the site through google....definitely in my bookmarked sites now.

One question I have, how do you control that mylar tubing stuff when you are trying to make the mylar baitfish flies?? I can't get it right.

Mmmm... not sure what you mean, maybe this helps, try some lead in sheets to shape the minnow belly, theres also some good material in champagne bottles, then insert the mylar, tie its end to the hook, measure the shank, cut and tie.
Whatever you tied it with, zonker, hackle (matuka style), peacock swords etc.. whip finish, cement let dry and then with a hot needle clean the hook's eye.
Hope this helps

Thats a good tip about the metal from the champagne bottles. Now that Christmass & new years are coming, I'll be keeping my eyes open for that stuff.

Thanks,
Pete
