Been eyeing this one for a bit now, and opted to tie it last night.
Made a slight change in using a grayish blue fur and hackle, compared to the original in the book. Thought it would look nice (always loved the combo of blue and golden olive).
Head is actually "salmonberry" pearsalls (waxed with cobblers), and dark orange shellac. Came out that rich orange/tan color...just liked the look of it so I left it as is.
I believe this is a #3 Blue Heron hook...but its possible its one size below that.
