Going up to 4x tippet is probably not going to work for fishing, but it would help with twist. I wonder if the soft hackle was causing more spin than usual, or spinning counter to the EHC. All my flies are asymetrical, but they usually don't twist on 5x. :roll:

All my flies are asymmetrical, too, but that's just because I'm a lousy fly-tier.

I think I have done so well because I have become adept and tying cripples. :D What I mean to tie is irrelevant. :lol:

You are a perceptive fly-tyer. What intelligent 20"-plus trout would chase a healthy nymph or dry when it can gulp a crippled one? The same reason my casting and presentation are so poor--to give the fish a false sense of security.
