Hey Charlie,

I've found that using Slinky Flash syn hair for a tail on these flies acts as a drag and won't let the fly dart. Hackle works much better. I've been doing a lot of tying and testing lately the tails need to be slick too so the material doesn't act as a "drag" keep the fly tracking straight when the retrieve is paused.

Also a long flashtail keeps the fly from darting. I only use a little "side flash".
