I wonder if fletch tape would work for this???  I think I will try some as I have all the materials at home.

Predator  60" 52@28 Leopard/Shedua
Super diablo 50@28 bubinga/purple
Predator Riser phenolic/maple - cant decide on limbs yet.

Great tutorial, I'llhave to give it a shot.
The season gave him perfect mornings, hunter's moons and fields of freedom found only by walking them with a predator's stride.

The fletch tape might be a good idea.

Fletch tape will work, but it doesn't hold up as well for me.  This is just my method.  Since I tie up fly fishing flies anyway, it is pretty easy...Doc

Contact cement on both the shaft and the strip should work...same as the spiral flu flu demo right.

Doc wanted to say thanks for the how to.  Was putting some new arrows together.  Hope not to loose these.

 

 

Thanks again

Doc, great method. I have been using super glue and self cut strips of white rabbit fur but your method looks more solid and more fun.

That's a hippie looking fishing vest and bead tool necklace in your bear scouting pic. Very cool! I will be hunting bears in NB next May and there are rumored to be similar fish in the area I am hunting.

Doc,

Flyfishing is just another way of hunting with stick and string.   :thumbsup:
