Flyrodde - Thanks for the help. I think that is what the instructions are saying. It looks like it may be a half hitch. The only thing that concerns me is the knot does not seem to be as tight as a half hitch usually is and the hackle can be slid fore and aft under the knot without too much difficulty. A little head cement will fix that. Another option I have is to finish dressing the fly and after whip finishing the head and trimming the thread I can go back and tie a couple of half hitches without too much trouble.
