Dry hackle sizing with wide gap hooks

Recommended Posts

Just food for thought I will pick size 16 hook standard or wide gap  use a size 16 hackle  and leave as a standard dry fly or if I want it to float flush on the surface I will trim the hackle off the bottom of the fly so really gap is not a problem try it out and see what work for you

Thanks for posting this, Chug.  As usual, Flytier has a good engineering approach.   Good diagram.  I had not thought about this.
