Hackles follow the L&L recipe :

Yellow Saddle
over gold flash
over Chartreuse Saddle
over silver flash
over white saddle.

Body is pearl body braid.

The tail/support is yellow bucktail with white neck hackle over, turned up.

The collar is bucktail - white underneath, yellow sides and chartreuse top. Cheeks are three fibres each of tourquoise (sp) and flourescent fuschia blended. Thats about the only variation from the original which called for violet in the blend.

Jungle cock eyes

I took the photo under a hologen lamp with no flash. I'll play around with it a bit more to get a better reference photo.
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
