    I could see that working in the appropriate size for both October Caddis and Salmonflies, though I'd certainly swap the wing for bronze mallard if I actually intended to fish something so pretty.

    That'd be a great October fly on the Madison, maybe tied a size or two smaller to better "match" the October Caddis. (Not really enough October Caddis to make for good fishing around here in general,...

    I use synthetics almost exclusively on all dry fly wings now. About the only hairwing flies I tie in quantities of more than a dozen or so a year (and we're talking commercial tying here) are blond...

    Okay I'm bookmarking this one. Swap everything for olive and tie it with a long tail on a #12 Dai-Riki #285 and that will crush it as a damsel nymph.

    They are only sold direct, and no they're not cheap. I have put something like 25,000 hooks through my pro jaws and there is only one noticeable ding. Doug also ties on one, and Byron might as well?

    Doug:

    Why? Cam Traveler was the worst rotary vise I ever owned. The jaws fell apart (exploded in my hands) after two years and they wouldn't help me in any way.
