    The "Waste" of Wood Duck fibers

    I have been tying some comparadun patterns with Wood Duck fiber highlights in the wings.
    There are usually a few long fibers left on the feather. These, I think, make good material for loop wing...

    Not sure I made it clear on the other post, but this is sorta what I was trying to explain about the wood duck or flank feather fibers being in front of the primary wing material on a CDC Comparadun....

    I'm a "trout only" fly fisherman. I prefer dry fly fishing.

    However, if I could only fish one fly year-round, I would have to accept the fact that over 90% of a trout's diet is underwater. So, I...

    Neil,
    I use the fly, interchangeably, with regular Sparkle Duns when there is a hatch on the water.

    Yes, dubbing between them.

    Different method of selling flies

    From time-to-time, there will be a post in which someone asks how they might go about selling the flies they tie.
