Rated 5 out of 5 by MacJack The Real Deal
I'm almost afraid to write this review because everybody will start to use these and they won't be my secret weapon any more. But I suppose it will get out so might as well let folks know these things are the real deal. Tied up a bunch of the Xsmall and Small on TMC 2487 (curved caddis) hooks and added either gold or silver bead heads. Gave a segmented look with lighter colored thread wraps between the legs over tan or olive dubbing bodies. Skip the strike indicator and just swing on a tight line to feel the strike. Have used in several streams and they produced in all. They're a bit pricey, and you'll find yourself going after snags you'd usually just snap off. Bottom line is that these probably make some of the best nymphs I've ever used.
