hairwings, married wing and feather wing flies
i see some of the guys who post in the fly tying thread the varieties of the above flies which some of you guys tie superb flies, so much so that i would not want to wreck them by letting a fish have a chew on them, but i refer to classics like the green butt skunk (a fly i have become very fond of, even seen them as a tube and a humpy variant, awesome colour combo) and the orange herron etc.
My question is do you generaly fish these flies on a floating line with maybe flurocarbon leader as the only 'weight' or do you fish these deep on heavy tips etc?
I realise they are probably suitable for any depth you like but is there a level they excel at, like in a shallow swift head or tail of a pool and due to the lack of weight becides the hook they swim in maybe the top 1-2ft of the water? or do they excel at the opposite, in deep slow pools?
They must find it difficult... those that have taken authority as the truth and not truth as the authority.
