Chaz, strange because I catch the crap out of trout on the Delaware using really heavily collared comparduns, Catskill style and also klinkhammer style flies. I guess those trout don't know any better.

In faster broken water, sparsely collared flies will sink. Look at the Wolff style flies - those have huge collars and were specifically tied to be fished in faster, broken water and guess what, they work.

Sparse collared flies work well in slower, flat, clear water while heavily collared ones work better in faster, broken and maybe off-colored water and you know what, there may even be some exceptions to this general rule.

Just spent some time dropping my ties in water and they seemed to float properly. Upright, and looked okay to me.

Guess the acid test comes when I can get them over some risers!

I'm going to come to Chaz's defense here. I believe when he refers to sparse he is referring to the non-hackled flies or the non hackle material. I know Chaz uses Whulff's (quite effectively, I might add) and his are tied well hackled. I simply think he was being specific to the fly posted by the OP. Perhps I am giving him too much credit but I doubt it.
