TheCream wrote:Just to add a couple of other things:
1. I have not used lead tape on any of mine yet and have had no issues with the fly "righting itself" in the water. I might not be using as much foam, and maybe that's why I don't need the lead? Anyway, haven't used it, haven't needed it. And
2. I tried a few patterns with black rear legs tied in made up of two strands of medium black rubber leg material, and I don't think they add much to the pattern. I couldn't really see them on the water, and in my opinion aren't worth the extra step.
