Here's a photo of the original and one of my copies. The body on the original used to look yellow but the outer layer of dubbing came off. The original used small, wide, curved feathers for the "fins" but I didn't have anything like that so I used the small fluffy feathers from the base of the hackle feathers and trimmed the tips a little. The original also looks like it has natural deer hair for the head, but I used olive. I also added the orange throat, which was not on the original. I'll post the complete recipe in a separate thread.
