Pete, mine is almost exactly the same size as the image on the monitor. It's just over 2" long with a 2-1/2" wingspan. I believe it's tied on a size 6 streamer hook, which is probably a little too small for this application. A hook with a bigger gap would make it much easier to hook the fish -- assuming they actually hit the fly. The red-colored dragonflies and the damsel flies in my area are about this size, but many of the dragonflies are much larger. FWIW, the Rapalas that were working for us were the 9cm (3-1/2") model in silver/black.
