I later used them for tails of articulated Brammer style streamers.

Is the 9 incher a fly or a lure. When wet it weighs a full 1/2 ounce. Cast that on your 3 WT!

thanks mike.  the fun part of the dragontails is blending different colors together and also different sizes such as  1/4  with 1/2 inch wide, 1/2 with 3/4.  there is no need for wire shanks   rich
