    ive been looking at your USD on your site. I too think that USDs are very natural looking and tied a lot up the season before similar to yours, but they seemed to twist far too much in use so gave up on them after a few sessions, even though they were taking fish well - do you have this problem?

    I've found they doo twist if the wing is overly large. Otherwise I have no more porblems than other drys.

    Nice midge!
    I have the same issue with gnats and other flat wings I've tied with similar wings. Doesn't seem to be a solution as far as I can see. Fish love them... so I'll keep using them!
