Man, I'm so sorry for the slow reply. I'm just now seeing this. I honestly don't know. A friend recommended I try a splayed wing with a two thread wrap gap between the collar for better action. In retrospect I should have given it a few dry runs before posting to SP. I didn't do his theory any justice with my poorly tied fly. Short story long, I won't know until it's fished this Spring (anyone that wants to fish pre/post Albany show hit me up).
