    I really like this idea!...saves from having to adjust the flyz every setup...just slide it on the ridgeline depending on the size of the tree.

    Agreed...I never thought of putting a prussic on the Flyz. That would be much quicker and easier to adjust than the Flyz threaded directly to the ridgeline.

    Re: How to use Dutch Flyz

    Ok, so on one end of the tarp you have two prussics. One connects to the ridgeline and the other to the flyz?

    Yeah, I think Dutch said he uses three prussics on a continuous ridge so in that case you'd have one prussic loop girth hitched to each tarp D-Ring wrapped around the ridgeline above and then a third prussic on the free end line that has a Dutch Fly threaded on it. The other free end just uses a Dutch Hook or in my case a Dutch Ti utility biner.

    Can you get any more Dutchware on there? I may need to try this out once the wallet refills.

    Actually it's only two pieces of Dutchware for my tarp. I use a Dutch Ti Utility biner on one end and a Dutch Fly on the other end and that's it. My tarp is attached to the ridgeline with prussic loops. I used to use mini biners to attach the prussic loops to the tarp D-rings but I pulled em' off now and just have the prussics tied to the D-rings now. There get's to be a point where you just have too much "junk" on your set-up I guess.

    Any pictures of how you prussic'd to the ridgeline then connected to the tarp. May have to do that with my new tarp to shave a biner or 2 off.

    No I don't have any pics of it but all I did was tie the prussic loop to the D-ring with a knot. A soft shackle prussic would be better but I don't have a proper tool (needle) to do a bury on a soft shackle. If someone sold Zingit soft shackles I'd buy one but I don't think anyone sells them. You can buy amsteel ones but that wouldn't work on a ridge line.

    I'd use a soft shackle prusik in the application as well. Here's how to make them:
