    Question A "Usual"?

    Need some Usual's for Michigan this June. I watched some U Tube offering on tying them and thought they looked a lot like the "Ought to be Banned" if a tail was added.
    Here's a size 18 I just finished and would like to hear what others think. It is difficult to keep the CDC barbules out of the tail.

    I doubt that it will be as durable as what I watched being tied but it sure was an easy tie.

    I wonder making a CDC loop wing would be more effective?

    It is a good looking pattern. I have to admit that when I saw your title of," Usual", I thought you were referring to Fran Better's "Usual" which has become my favorite dry next to Fran's" Haystack".
    Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.
