My order shipped quickly and was backed by excellent customer support when one of the fly sizes was on back order. I use this fly as the middle dropper on a 3 fly Czech nymphing leader and have been happy with the quality. Most importantly it has been successful in catching browns in Waterton Canyon over the last couple months.
It is pretty well known throughout the Czech nymphing community that the French are really good fishermen, especially in the World Championships. There secret is hot orange beads on just about all of their flies. The Frenchy will have fish swimming out of their way to eat it. Super heavy and a great choice for you point fly position. NOT BARBLESS
