Punch Skirts

Recommended Posts

I slide the "mandrel" (the part that gets the skirt tied around) onto one end of a straightened paper clip.  Hopefully it's a tight enough fit to keep the mandrel from turning, but, if it's not, I put a slight bend in the clip wire to act as a kind of a spring, to hold the mandrel.  Then I clamp the other, unstraightened end of the paper clip in my fly tying vise.  Then I just tie my skirt material on the same way I tie skirts on jigs.

It works for me, so it must be pretty simple to do.  Hahaha
