The colors of your dressing would do well in some of the tannin stained waters I fish. Exceptional tying as usual. It's long tail draws me in aesthetically ( it's so sweet) but my experience says make it shorter

A cure for short-strikers? Thanks for the suggestion; I'll tie some up with docked tails, too.
