This is exactly the kind of stuff "our" fish like to CHOMP! Can also see that one done up with Olive marabo; and I'd be very tempted to stick with the black body for the colour contrast.

Start tying, I have to tie some more of those for myself !

Olive is good, throw the tungsten cone head on it and you really get them excited..
