im about to tie a couple dozen prince nymphs and prior to starting I checked my pattern books for the material requirements. my books list this patterns as a , "brown forked tail", which I believe is what doug prince originally called it when he created it. the photo accompanying the pattern description shows the white goose biots turned up on the completed fly, not down as shown on most renditions of this pattern.

we have some very knowledgeable people on this web site and was wondering, what's the general opinion, up or down, and besides deviating from the original pattern, does it make a difference.
