Yes,
I coat the herl with Griff's thin multi coat.
The herl last longer when I coat them vs. no coating.

Nice- My stripped herl bodies look like shit in comparison. You really have the segmentation down. I am sure this is a good one greased to sit just below the surface as well.

Question about this pattern-I have seen mention of other colors, does the original just incorporate a ribbed floss body or somthing?

The original calls for a Super Hair body.  From the creator:

Hard to argue with the stripped peacock herl though--amazing fish catching properties for whatever reason.

Yes,
The original pattern calls for a super hair body, I am waiting for some to arrive in the mail, but wanted to fish this pattern in the interim. I also tie them with floss bodies. This pattern does well fished deep too.

just got some Superhair and tied a few last night. now, that you have been playing with all of the body materials for a while, which one do you like the best?-Superhair, Stripped P-cock Herl, DMC thread?

any work any better? I am just wondering if any of them have a better fish quotient?

thanks

Another killer pattern! Thanks for sharing.
Your DMC yellow and olive was the ticket yesterday.

Sorry for the late response,

All the materials have their unique qualities, I like the stripped herl for its ease of wrapping, but the DMC has a myriad of colors to choose from, and when wet changes the tones and hues to closely matches the midge pupa colors I have found so far.

The Super hair in easy to tie in and wrap also, with the added advantage of durability, it last longer than stripped herl, but the colors are limited

Each one will produce fish, but I would have to give the herl a slight advantage in its consistency to produce. But there have been times when the others have produced fish when stripped herl would not.

It boils down to whats hatching, and what colors are in the feeding columns the day you fish. I always turn over a few rocks, to see whats clinging to them, or seine the current to find the right color combinations.

How is the best way to strip the hurl?  I have heard you can use an eraser or bleach?
