Re: Attractor Fly Problems
IMO, in a small size like that, I doubt it will matter. Even though these are attractors, they still represent some type of insect. Aquatic insects, when hatching, will be breaking through the surface film, and not all will be perfectly up right. Trout or any other fish will target crippled or struggling insects too!
Are you testing your flies with tippet attached? Or, is this fishing situation observation?
If you're simply dropping them on water, you may need to attach some tippet to get the correct read on how they will ultimately sit.
If you're actually fishing them, it's possible there is some twist in your leader & tippet that is turning them on the side.
