I have been making some of Danbobs yellow sallies with tan Elk hair because that was all I had. I have found some really nice yellow deer hair that looks better on the finished fly because of its thinner diameter. However I had a thought ( scarey as it may seem ) does deer hair float as well as Elk or does it sink like a rock.

Also danbob if you read this, I tried to find your post about finding a scorce for small yellow hackle , but couldn't find it. It may not even have been your thread. Anyway I couldn't find the post. did you ever get a scorce for it?
