Dave,

The palmered craft fur fly I posted pics of way back when weighed quite a bit when tied on a hook of 3/0 or bigger. It was heavy primarily because the craft fur soaked up water like a sponge and was like casting an anvil, especially if you water hauled the fly and kept it saturated in the process. This fly does not hold much water and the wire weighs very little. I can send you some of this chenille if you pass on your address and you can tie a few of your own if you would like to see for yourself. Attached is a pic of the "heavy" fly. Dave
