- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I haven't fished with this much since the size is off for the season, but I threw it in the water just today to see how it looks. Results? Delicious. I cant wait to throw this bad boy in the future! As other reviewers noted, avoid gel on the whole body. I threw gel on the main body and powder on the fluff and it looked great!
Like the other review said, I recommend not applying any gel floatant. I did and noticed a bit of clumping. It wore off those and worked better from there on out. When my elk hair caddis and Adams wasn't working I tried this with more luck.
tricks big nasty trout!
You really can't beat a comparadun, unless it's a cdc comparadun. If you fishing slow slicks with super selective trout this fly is probably your best option. Sits low in the water and the cdc looks even more realistic than hair. For best results, I'd recommend not applying gink (gel type floatant) to the feather. It will work, but it makes the cdc clump together. I have found that if you use a dry powder such as frogs fanny, it leaves the feather looking much more natural. This holds true to all dry flies that use cdc. I do apply some gink to the biot body though.
