    I like the chunky version of this okay dokey. Will have to dress a few of these, as I also like the use of the No. 7 globrite floss, as opposed to no. 5.
    This is the first time I have seen this used. Very nice.

    You can paint the hook with white primer (as used on cars), then do the body with white glo-brite in a bobbin holder. It means there is no need to wrap thread and this keeps the body very slim.
    I do half a dozen hooks and leave to dry. Do the rest of the fly next time you're tying.
    The white floss shows up much brighter over the white paint.

    I have used white tippex (Correction Fluid) before, this dries in a matter of minutes. Bigwull on another forum uses White P.T.F.E Plumbers tape.
