P-gons will slay for deep fast short drifts. They sink like a rock.
I tore up a few crazy patterns as perdigon on occasion and they've worked.
I'm low on materials or I'd you're you a couple and see what you think.
Are you Euro nymphing, suspension nymphing, etc?
They'll work for either, but I personally think they're better for euro.
I've got a few inverted beads in silver that make great perdigon nymphs. I caught a rather hefty brown at the dam, on a variant I tie. I have one to @bozosnightmare and I think he called it something like buddy the brown trout slayer, or something like that.
I've gotta tie for the smokies and the Utah after that I'd be happy to give you a few.
3$ for a fly is stupid. I sell mine for a bargain price of either $2.99 or some tequila lol
