    Finished my 1st Delfur Fancy on eyed hook! What a pain marrying barbules, even after steaming. Going to tie some more on eyed hooks, getting down the marrying of left and right barbule strips, let alone keeping rachids locked together at tie in point while tying in, to keep head small!!

    That can certainly be a challenge! Enjoy the tying. I look forward to seeing the results.
