    Mario, this version is slightly different to the the dressing you show on Tom's website - here you omit the legs. Which one do you prefer?

    Hi Mike - with the UV2 I leave the flash legs out. Without the UV thorax I use the UV flash legs.

    Have a question for you guys do you think it matters what side you tie in the flash? The hook will be riding hook point up so in essence upside down, I normally try and tie the flash in on the other side, however out of habit I often tie it as the fly above! I don't think the fish care...?
