    HI Ray,

    Is that ultra fine? If I remember correctly it's around 1.8 or 2lb test. I tie all my striper flies with it, mostly because it becomes clear when wet.

    If there was already an existing and readily available fly database I don't think this would be too hard. But as Jeff says, the biggest part is entering all the fly patterns and materials list for...

    Hmmm, wonder why this fly is just popping up on all the boards all of a sudden. It's been out for years. Normand has it right, but don't flatten the mono, leave it round as it'll help form the...

    Yeah, but I don't think it's all that of a secret. I think people just try to push products they like or prefer. A lot of the synthetics (especially the mylars etc...) are the same stuff except...

    I would say the tail was too sparse or too short maybe? It could also have something to do with the hook you are using as well.

    In general, when I tie dries, when I'm done I will take the fly...
