Here is a hackle dun pattern I use.

Nicely done with just the right amount of hackle, just like the Catskill masters used to do it.

The fly is a size 20.

Anyone use a wing burner? Would you recommend it?

I have used them in the past and I didn't care for them on feathers. The wing material in this fly is a type of nylon so it would melt, not burn clean.
