Step 11- Tying in the Tail
You can use many different materials for the tail. You could use maribou, hackle, Flashabou, craft fur and many other choices. I like round rubber because it is durable. I got the idea from some poppers we sell at the shop called Walts Poppers. I usually attach two legs with thread trying to spread them apart, then tie in some Krystal flash in the center and add a third leg on top and between the two. Start your thread at the back of the body at the bend of the hook then wrap on your choice of tail materials on. After your tail has been added, whip finish and coat the wraps with Zap-A-Gap, head cement or 5 minute epoxy. Some makers wrap some dry fly hackle around the thread then whip finish.
