    My only complaint is the straps. The Dry Fly is short on coverage, but it does the job effectively. I've never gotten wet, even when set up during the rain season with heavy afternoon downpours.

    Thanks for all of the input folks. I do have another question. For those that have the Fast Fly, what is the actual dimensions of your fly? I was in Cincinnati yesterday and stopped by Benchmark Outfitters to look around for a minute. The hangtags on every Fast Fly they had in stock showed the dimensions as 12'x9'6". The ENO site lists the dimensions as 11'9"x11'9". The young lady at the store gets out their ENO catalog to check what it says, and it was showing a 3rd size at 9'x9'6". I didn't have time to get one out and measure it in the store. Can someone tell me what the real size of these things are?

    Love the DN! Went with straps from Strapworks and whoopies from whoopieslings.com. Use 2-3" pieces of 3/4" oak dowel rod for my marlin spikes (it's what I had in my workshop). My bugnet is a diy model - easy to make - even for a total noob like me. I got a Big Mamajamba tarp from warbonnet - dry as a bone underneath and enough room for 3 people to wait out a 5 hour torrential downpour! That's my setup and FWIW, I have zero complaints.
