How to Wrap Multi-Strand Materials on the Hook (11 of 57)

Wrapping a single strand of, say, chenille on a hook to create a fly body can be frustrating enough, if the wraps don’t touch or the body comes out lumpy and uneven. When you add the complexity of multiple strands that have to be controlled during the wrapping process, it can drive a tier batty. But Tim Flagler has a ridiculously simple solution–instead of repositioning your thread at the front of the shank and wrapping the materials up to that point, wrap the materials behind the thread, using the tension of the handing bobbin to keep all the matrials in place.
