My apologies, for I did in fact forget to put the *S* after my last comment to indicate I was not seriously calling you crazy. At least not any crazier than the rest of us who do this sort of thing. Looking at your fly with the little side floats, tho, I personally would opt for another method. I tie a lot of CDC-winged mayflies and caddis and midges, which seem to float just fine, from choppy water to flat slow water, and their ability to catch fish is limited not by how long they float, but by the skill of the operator (me) at putting them where the fish can choose to take one, and the length of drag-free float I can get.
