  1. Royal Coachman Hook: Standard Dry Fly Thread: Black Tail: Golden Pheasant Tippet Wing: White Duck Quill Body: Peacock Herl with Red Floss Center Hackle: Brown
  2. I don't think I have ever stripped off one side of a dry fly hackle. If I want a sparse hackle I use fewer wraps. I have seen flies with hackles immpressively close to perfectly upright that were not stripped. I have stripped one side on soft hackles occasionally.
  3. I bought a bunch of materials from FTD at a show right before the pandemic. Among the stuff I bought was some scud back material ( I think they call it bug back). Most of it sat in a closed drawer for a couple of years. When I tried to use it, it wasn't usable. It would break with even the slightest stretch. I guess we need to be careful about what we stock up on.
  4. Currently 193 patterns have been tied http://www.flytyingforum.com/index.php?/topic/112443-challenge-thread-fly-pattern-list/ That's really not that many compared to all of the possibilities.

  8. It looks like the classic solution in search of a problem.
  9. Western October Caddis (Dicosmoecus) are quite large. Troutnut.com says 30mm long for adults. http://www.troutnut.com/hatch/2594/Caddisfly-Dicosmoecus-October-Caddisflies A standard size 10 hook might even be a little small.
