Great proportions Nik.

My understanding is that if you draw an imaginary line from the tip of the tail to the tip of the hackles, the line should just touch the hook bent at a tangent to its curve.

Incidentally, I grew up near the catskills and fished there a bit.  We used to fish alot of soft hackle and no-hackle emergers.  So much for tradition.   :)

Hi Matt and thanks..
You are right about the proporption guidance as you described (as what I know of) Its a little awkward on this type of hook though, tha hook gap is rather wide.. But it gives it kind of Tradition meets today kind of look :D .
If I were to have the chance to fish the Catskill I would never use anything but a traditional tied Catskill tie and offcourse my Bamboo rod.. Might evn buy me self a hat :kungfo:
