    Wow! I didn’t know that I tied that tail soooo long. Please note that the tail should be 1.25-1.5 times the gap of the hook. I like a shorter tail on my hairwing patterns, unlike the example. Also, more hackle in front of the wing.

    Take care,

    Good job Tony, I tend to do the same with my dries too, it still looks good enough to eat though!
