    It was suggested to me,less hair is better,plus cut at the back of the hook......no real proof either way.....but I tend to listen to the ones that do

    Agreed. I tend to leave my hair a touch long and trim later if desired. Do you ty the hair on in one big clump or several small clumps adding a little at a time around the jig? Also my biggest struggle is dealing with the hair itself . I got it in bulk. Like 12oz of 8" long hair. Its hard to pull out just what I need mainly because of the crimped hair grabbing others. Hard to deal with without getting hair everywhere. Oh well I enjoy it so I'll keep playing until I get I mastered. :-)

    Years ago, Harvey Looney showed me his 'homemade' setup to make his now famous jigs.
    One secret was the nylon 'hair' he used was actually a set number of strands of 2 pound test monofilament line.
    His system was ingenious to say the least!

    Let me know if you want to hear more Bill...
