more leg-knotting

we’d already seen different methods of knotting different materials with the goal of giving them the characteristic bent shape that just about every bug’s joints have:
– Knotting your legs by hand
 bend Ze legs and keep Zem bent
sexy legs simply

in this new how-to video, Davie McPhail shows us yet another method, this time using tweezers making it easier to make multiple knots on the same fiber(s) while leaving them on the feather’s quill. nice and handy for storage and easier later on to select the right size when at the tying bench. towards the end of the clip we’ll notice how he uses the same method but with mallard feathers instead of the usual pheasant tail.  hopefully this will inspire the creative tier to experiment with other materials. enjoy !
