I used to tie about 150 dozen of this type fly each winter for one shop alone when I was tying commercially. The only thing different was I use marabou instead of schlappen because it moves better in the water and then I added a collar of duck mallard flank to help the marabou move more enticingly. Tied them on 2/0, 1/0, and 2's. Never fished them though because I prefer to fish traditional Glasso speys, G.P.'s, Ally's Shrimp, or even full dressed feather wings in the winter.
