Thanks guys. Unfortunately, as I said in the SW thread, this fly has yet to catch any fish. It seems to be one of those flies that looks better to the fishermen than it does to the fish. Or maybe it just needs more testing, say, during the pike clave
?? Its much simpler cousin (no body, no weight, less superhair, no epoxy, no eyes, no magic marker) proved to be much more successful and has caught many bass and pickerel and even a couple bluegills and yellow perch. As an added bonus, the simple version is much easier to cast as well! I'll post the recipe for that fly in a separate thread.
