Default To Rib or Counter Rib

Since moving from Memphis I tend to be anti-rib due to the lack of dry rub ribs, but that's a different topic of discussion.

When tying a fly that calls for a rib, which is usually decorative in nature it seems most tyers wrap their rib in the same direction as the material. I tend to do counter-ribs, which I think tends to protect the materials better or maybe it's because I am half left handed.

What say you?

I counter rib always unless its over thread. This is for the simple fact that the material seems to find the grooves in whatever material thats underneath better and sits more aesthetically correct. But what do I know, I'm half right handed. Seriously....they make you convert if your a southpaw back in the motherland.

I'm a dry rub rib man myself. I will eat mopped ribs, but prefer dry rub.

When I tied, I went counter wrap especially when wrapping with wire. If just window dressing, wrap with the flow.

My grandmother went through that in the early 1900's. If I am doing something one handed, i.e. casting, writing, I am right handed; if it requires two hands I am naturally left handed.

Supposedly it stopped in the 90s but I know it went on until before 2000 in some areas. My grandpappy, who was also left handed, used to hit me in the head with a wooden spoon if I used my left hand at the table. Ironically, he got a stroke that debilitated his right side and had to go back to the left.

Kelly Galloup has a great video on this exact topic. I usually defer to him on fly tying tips:

Cole Slaw goes on the top of the meat in your BBQ sandwich.
