i've been fishing a lot of dahlberg's and have had explosive results in the last few weeks...was just curious...would like to hear how others dress thier divers.....anyone want to share a little knowledge?

I tend to use a little bit more marabou and flash in the tail than the recipe calls for. I'll compromise a bit on the hackles in the tail to get more breathability and pulse from the other materials.

Does it make a difference? Well, it works for me. :)

i have found that to be very effective as well, mark. works great in my smaller streams....slayed 'em this weekend on a black body with a purple flash tail....couldn't keep 'em off the line!!
