Thank you for the critique, experience, and suggestion. I think I'll tie some completely without any added weight.Dig it. I've had a lot of success on black and red.
I sure hope you are tying some of those with waaay less weight though. Even with the smallest size eyes that thing is gonna sink quickly.
I would love to swing some of these for trout!Hollywood's Picric Golden Olive Mayfly (variation)
