I just received a order of DNA material in today's mail. This is my first try at a bunker pattern using this material. Tail is 4 saddle hackles. approx 5 inches long. Feel free to critique. :)

Jim..it looks perfect. It is too bad the material comes in such small packages... Did you try trimmimg thp top down a bit to get the fly more pointed in back. Maybe for bunker it is not necessary. How did it react to the tub test?. The combination of colors really makes a realitic fish side don't you think?

I'm going to work on using less material and try to omit the paintbrush look on the DNA ends. I did this Hightie style and I think I can use alot less material to get the deep profile. It did look good in the "Tub test".......but a little to bulky.
