Field testing this past weekend was partially successful. Fly action in the water was exactly what I wanted. 2-3 surface bulges before fly saturates and then suspends ~6" below the surface. Nice side-to-side wiggle on a steady retrieve and long fibers didn't seem to tangle too much.

Don't false cast too much if using a 8 or 9WT to cast these beasts. Wind resistance on the dry fly makes accurate casting a decent challenge even in light winds.

Now, if only I could find some fish!
