  1. Pretty much, it's Fly Suede from Pat Cohen. What I really like about it is that it moves and wriggles really well but is also sort of neutrally buoyant in the water. At rest, it doesn't just sag/flop down. Yes, it's an old Orvis Edition Spartan. I've had it for a long time, I'm not even sure if they do those green Orvis models anymore.
  2. It's Jonathan Kiley's stuff. The sheets are what he calls Exo Skin. The dragonfly bodies are pre-cut when you buy them, and he actually calls them Damzel Tails. They look more like dragonfly than damsel fly bodies to me. Look up Flyskinz, that's his company.
  3. This is how I do the single strand guards on the small crappie streamers. They will still get hung off and on, but most of the time they come out unscathed.
  4. Deer hair popper trimmed slim and slender, more like a Crease fly.
  5. Playing with split case materials. I like this combo. Yellow uni stretch over yellow Veevus holotinsel, topped with Loon thin.
  6. My favorite is none. I don't like them. But when I do use them, it's usually on small streamers I intend to put into brush piles for crappies and such. In those situations, usually a single strand of 20lb mono cut just short enough it can't tick the hook point works well.
  7. That was my first MGC, so can't say much at this point. Pretty simple tie the way I did it. I'll do a few and fish them, then I'll probably have a more solid opinion.
