I bought mine recently, and, after a rough start, I found it wonderful for tying size 20 flies. PMD's and BWO's are now do-able. Tie in tail, dub on body, make dubbing brush with CDC, wind on brush, whip-finish the head, and trim down the CDC to get the right profile. I tried float-testing my duns and emergers by throwing them into a bowl of water. They all did well until finally intentially sunk. Anyone else working on small patterns?
