Is it me or do you find tying pike flies or streamers of that ilk messy?
I've just started tying a few over the last month and the long lengths of synthetic and flash seem to end up everywhere, carried on my clothes to every corner of every room in the house! Tidy tying tips welcome...

Yes that sounds about right 🤣. It’s like trimmed deer hair on steroids when it comes to getting everywhere and as often you can’t see it until the light catches it a certain way, it keeps appearing when you think you’ve got it all!
