Fly Tying (Extended Body by Furling)

Furled~Extended Body (Rowley)

Furling means, “to gather into a compact roll and bind securely”, from a fly tying perspective furling involves twisting a material and allowing it to fold and wrap around itself. The end result is a durable tapered body. Antron is one of the easiest materials to furl but other materials work well including yarn, Super Stretch Floss, Mohair even dubbing loops. When using soft materials such as Anton, dipping the completed furled body in Softex prior to tie in provides additional durability and reduces the chance of the extended body from fouling around the hook bend. Furled bodies also offer the added benefit of built in segmentation, ideal when tying damsel nymphs and extended body dry fly patterns. Segmentation is a by product of direct pressure and the number of twists applied while furling. The more pressure and twists you use the greater the segmentation.
