Hi Todd,
Benn tying these for about 5 years or more I started tying it on a curved hook to see if it would make a differance in the hook up rate and it did so I stuck with it. It also can be tied with a soft hackle collar as well will try to get that up soon.
Thank you for taking a look tie some of these up and give them a go you will not be dissapointed.
If you don't tie pm me and let me know what you would like.


Thank You,
Allen

VERY NICE and thanks for the heads up. I am seeing more flies tied on scud hooks, but never a Prince. Great job!
