    While an interesting anecdote, it does negate the single biggest advantage of the Comparadun, i.e. that you do not need to use hackle. I'm also a bit suspicious about hackle adding that much...

    Great tie. Bet this pattern will float for a while. Seems like a bit of overkill, unless it is meant as a skater?

    Nice tie, and thanks.

    Good bug although I have found that a thread body and a sparse wing tied EHC style is sufficient for my waters.

    That sure is a striking color combination. Not sure when you would fish it, but it sure does stand out.

    Have you tried Superhair/Ultrahair tied Jujubee Midge style? Would fit this motif well,...

    Did not realize Lawson originated that style. A nice demonstration of how there is nothing new under the sun. Those dubbed bodies are just a bit too high maintenance for me, though. River I fish...

    Very nice pattern, especially for a hopper/dropper rig. Thanks for sharing, Scott. Fished a very similiar pattern with a bullet head/wing of black elk (maybe moose?) called the "Fluttering Stone"...

    "Tactical" perhaps? Personally I mostly ignore the hype and just use the standard hooks for the majority of my nymphs, even when 'euro-nymphing'. When I need a jig hook, I tend to gravitate to...

    Beautiful dyeing job on the pheasant. I especially like how the contrasts developed in the collar hackle. The half-pounders should really like this fly in Autumn.

    Barred Flashabou or Krystal Flash would be adequate, but not exactly the same thing (Flashabou is wider, Krystal Flash has less motion). Grizzly hackle is the original material and Senyo's Predator...

    Tend to favor "Web Wing" which is just polypropylene I suspect (no different than Congo Hair), and "Hi Viz" which is a much shinier product in a variety of colors. Neither become transparent when...

    Melk,

    Not exactly sure what you mean by the 'barbules falling off'. Is that after or while you are tying? If you are using feathers from one of those little bags, I'm no surprised you are having issues...
