Granny, do you know if you are using moose mane or moose body hair? I ask because I tied some Thunderheads with 5-6 moose mane hairs and the tails seemed to not want to float, just busted through the surface of the water.
Hugh, Great to hear from you! The Blackbird has been a staple ever since I took your advanced nymphing class. I have never tried calftail. I'll try that. Any experience with deer/moose/elk hair for tails? If so, what specific types?
