I think that the Dettes have had an impact on every tyer that uses hackle....not only the coffin fly....But especially the Coffin Fly.....If you will notice that the Detties Use a slightly heavier Hackle Large than most and a slightly larger wing....Much more different than most modern catskill tyers are trying to shove done our throats.....Why?? a misconception, Maybe ....I Use a Slightly oversize Hackle so ever thing must follow suite....

Thank You
