Default Pseudo flies

This's year we designed a new range of Irish lough flies using the pseudo hackle.
Last week with the season opening we managed to field test them and the results were out of this world,one guy on lough Sheelin turned over 30 fish using these.
This has now resulted in me fully booked each night for fly tying classes and a Saturday workshop for some of the ladies from the Irish team.
Traditional Irish flies using this material has got the attention over here big time.
Not only for trout flies as we designed shrimp patterns for steelhead and Atlantic salmon.
This is going to be a very interesting year.

Very nice indeed. I am a huge fan of Dabblers, a true classic

Laurie: Good to see you posting again! Any idea why the Pseudo hackle works so well on the fish?

Hi Larry
Not been in good health last year but gradually getting better, we think the pseudo works better because the materials is translucent and when it is in the water it gives off a shine that show up well especially in pretty coloured waters.
We were put all day yesterday teaching 100 kids and fishing a mountain hilltop lake and we used the black pseudo and ended up with a 20% catch rate which is good even though we had high winds and snow.
So it is back to the studio this morning to finish off some an order for Larry wegman from the southern council of the IFFF he hi coming over to Ireland in August for a spot of fishing and to visit my new studio.
Hopefully I will get him on to some of our natural rivers for a few days.

I love the look of Dabblers, but I'm confused about what they are supposed to be.

Attractors?
