Bullet Head Madam X

Here is another great video from Youtube. Here we have a classic Madam X, a pattern tied with a bullet head. This video is well done and has a few things going for it like the explanation and demonstration of using the bullet head tool and well, the vise is tops in my books. Another little tip I picked up was the application of the legs. It’s a bit different than I’ve seen but effective none the less. the barred rubber legs are another material I have been using more of this year for some of my larger dry patterns and my Bass flies as well.
