    I have not fished them yet as not the right time of year but would imagine they would get battered pretty easy but due to them being simple to tie you can rattle off a good box full.

    There was one like this called the "Hatchmatcher" back in the 70's.

    Nice, I think I'll tie up 20 or 30 of those in a size 20 or 22 for a tail water midge imitation
