Very nice baitfish pattern - sardina for tunas in Mexico for sure! What's the body material? My initial reaction was peanut bunker ;)

Thanks For Posting Rich!... Nice round body and I am having a hard time trying figure out the tail ...is it flat or 'Pronged"? Great idea!.

John, the tail is 1. feather stripe to the vain , an leave some on the end. then cut a ( V ) in the feather for the tail. tie the vain in the hook leaving it extend past the end fo it is FREE to move BUT I noticed I need stronger feather to cut the V into maby cock schlepin will be better. thats it.
"GOOD LUCK GOOD TYIN"
