Awesome tie.

In addition to Jim's note about the spreader, Page Roger's use of a gill plate in her Bigeye Baitfish pattern keeps the body deep, adds action and after watching feeding bunker and anchovies I noticed they flare out their gills wide like tadpoles when feeding. Might be a nice variation.
