I agree on the "pretty good" assessment Jim. I see one fiber that MIGHT be out of place - HA HA HA HA.

A real beauty on a lovely hook!!!!

Cheers,

George

Looks very good. How are you doing the eye? Sure hope you find a willing bluegill.

Hoping for anything that will pull Dale. Got this from Aaron many moons ago. Having a tuff time finding any of the real deal right now. Am searching every day for 6 and 8 lb stuff from Japan. Like to twist my own when possible.

Hey it serves the purpose and looks pretty good in my less than expert opinion.

I agree with your assement Jim plus some!! John tells me that he has the real right now. For what it's worth, I like the Japaneese "gut" too. 


Happy Trails!

Very inspiring fly.

 

I really like the body hackle. Amazingly wave-like flare. Which hook size is this (in modern terms)?

Thanks Jim. Enjoy the jerk at the other end. Would enjoy seeing a fish photo.
