Trying my hand at saltwater patterns in hope of catching my first bass on the fly this year. Overall quite happy with how it turned out.

To me it looks like a lot of material in this, I'd be choosing a more sparse dressing.
I think there’s a place for the fuller dressing, but I do agree with your observations for most applications and ease of use.
I think it’s trial and yet more trial when it comes to a session on the coast, but these modern materials don’t carry the water like bucktail does and a degree of transparency of a sparse dressing often wins over a heavier example.
love the lateral line btw.
