      Put a dab of head cement back there (you can find it at the fly shop for a couple bucks I use wapsi) and also get a bobbin

      Idk about flies but to keep the skirt/trailer on bass jigs I use super glue like @jurssica mentioned i imagine it should work for flies

      I would personally super glue. One of my nymphs started to untangle and I just superglued it lol.

      No it's a popper fly and the part that looks like legs are sliding down the hook @Cowboy713

      As @flybob and @wyldechylde77 said, just need to make sure they are tied nice and tight, a little head cement or zapagap never hurt either lol

      @flybob Yeah, that's the most likely scenario is that you aren't tying them tight enough or aren't finishin them correctly with a few hitch knots or ...more whip finishes

      Maybe the materials aren't tight enough @Cowboy713 and @wyldechylde77 should know more
