Thank you Ronn for hook, bead, and guidance!

 

I got a kick out of tying this monster and I hope I did bead fly tying justice.

 

The blue rear section of the fly is not unburnished floss, it's actually twisted Gutterman glitter thread I picked up and wanted to try.  I was hoping it would be a little more shiny but instead it looks to me like unwound unburnished floss.

 

Thanks for looking.

 

Jon

Well...I can't say for sure but I'd be willing to wager Ronn thinks you've done him proud in your impersonation of his work. In my opinion...one fine effort !!!!

 

Cheers,

That is a whole bunch of clean tying! I especially like the shape of the head! Justice done.

Awesome fly John.  This one should make Charlie Chute cringe for sure.
