Nice ties... to get them flatter, here are two things that i do...

1. Cut 2 pieces of .35 Weighted Wire the length of the shank and using unistretch lash then to the sides of the shank to get the "wide and thin" profile.

2. Wrap the shank with .25 weighted wire, wraped in 3 layers of unistretch, mash with flat/smooth pliers to flatten the wire mass. The unistrech may fray, so go back over with thread, to bind the unistretch base layer and start the bug.

Those are my two methods based on size. Kudos on the legs, those are a must for stoneflys.

Warren Perry and Walt Ryans flies arrived today. Nice work guys! Warren sent 2 different patterns for every one. Very generous. Keep in mind that tomorrow a group of tiers from the site are getting together at my house to tie and you guys are welcome. Shoot me a PM and I'll send you directions.
