    Hey Joe,
    Veevus 30d GSP is half the price for a 50%+ larger spool than semperfli nano. Same traits as any other gsp, including being stronger than you'd ever need.

    It's a water-based paint that sets at room temp overnight and is then thermo hardened in an oven @ 300-325 degrees for 30-40 minutes. I don't imagine that's warm enough to disturb the hook temper.

    Standard shank hooks in your choice of wire diameter from standard to 3xh (e.g., Mustad R50 & S80, TMC 9300, 900BL, 3769) or TMC 2488/2488H for a wider gap yet.

    It's what you tie on the hook that...

    Byron, you must have the tungsten carbide version (black loops) which I understand lack serrations altogether. The std "gold loop" hair scissors are ~$16-17.

    Only one blade is serrated; sharpen the plain edge blade if you wish, not the serrated blade.

    IMO, for $15, I consider them disposables.

    I took "right now" as a reference to this time of the season,...when flows are reduced, and the trout have seen a plethora of imitations. Never considered another interpretation.

    Thanks for the replies Bob and Allan. I've never fished a traditional, full-collared dry with a single wing. I imagine it being more prone to leaning over.
