    Byron I have Mathew's fly tying yellowstone hatches vol.2 and he ties an improved x-caddis with z-lon in it. My guess is it was an oversight by Bucky at the time the video was made.

    I say the same thing about the Griffiths gnat. I feel it's the quality of today's hackle, in regards to today's saddle hackle you can make many more turns than the stuff I used 35-40 years ago.
