Temple Dog – Hakan Norling

The original templedog tied up by Mr. Templedog himself, Hakan Norling. There are hundreds of tube patterns now spawned from this template and can be found in many colors. One important step to note while tying templedog style patterns is to tie the wing forward and bend it back in place. Be careful not to wrap on the hair after it is folded back, but rather at the base of the hair so that it flairs and produces a large voluminous profile. Enjoy.
