FrenchCreek Mark, I just don't have John's patience....:hehe:
As for the test drive, I'll be testing them as well, I tied a similar pattern last year but with a different fibre, more coarse and stiffer and very krinkled type of stuff. It did not stand up to the teeth test of the pikers. I'm hoping that this one will do better becasue the fibres are softer and I think it will be easier to release them from the teeth on the roof of the mouth and I hope the platform will also help prevent too much tangling.
Let me know how it works out for you.

Dble Haul I agree with John.

Why did you tie in the hairs? Didn't you want to goop them one by one onto the spreader like John does with feathers? j/k

Looks like I'll have another pike fly to test drive this spring.

Here is the Pic

I hope you don't mind the name, the pattern is using many of your Feather Brain techniques so I fogured the name should reflect your pattern.
