Flytire,

Yes, it is a true collar, but it is very sparse.It is what makes the fly hang in the film.The hooks that I have listed are all heavy wire and therefore the amount of time that the fly actually floats is limited, but that is when it gets hammered in my experience. The buck tail helps to give the silhouette some bulk and keeps the wing spread out when it gets wet. Its a very old pattern.
