    You use an MP vise?

    Under thorax para?

    As mentioned in the other post, Borger started tying these in 1982, "sans" the bent hook. He does not mention when he began bending the hook.....
  9. Accidental Dun....Yarn Wing Dun revisited

    I tied one of Gary Borger's "Yarn Wing Duns" in a post recently.
    Last night, I was reading his book "Fishing the Film" (2012). In it, he mentions that he has modified his original version.

    Hackled Sparkle Dun

    Caucci and Nastasi spoke highly of the hackled comparadun in their book "Hatches".
    I am not sure that I have seen a hackled Sparkle Dun, but I think it might be a good pattern on slick water?

    Ray,
    Leading edge biots are on all wings.

    The biots vary in size and by bird: goose biots v. Turkey biots, for example.
