    I prefer poly over hair. I think it's lighter, casts better and doesn't soak up water like deer hair will with the cut ends exposed. It will wick water down to where it's tied in, but a few false...

    Scott,
    Have you tried the new "Hi-Float" fibers from the Fly Tyer's Dungeon? I got some, brushed it out like he recommends, and it sinks like a rock. They are VERY soft and easy to work with even...

    Thanks, Scott. Do you know if the new Freestone line has been "improved" any since your experiences? Know anything about the Patagonias?

    Very interesting fly, Ralph. I didn't have any gopher but I tied a couple with squirrel instead, using the squirrel tail hairs as the wing and tail and the spikey body fur as the body.
