Beautiful job. I though that you said you had trouble casting a flyrod. Now I know what these will be used on a Spinning Rod.

Not quite...

I got these at Rod Builders...The shape and gap lent itself to my fuzzy notion.
Now I'll have to look at the EWG Gammy ...it never stops!

Pen, I use those hooks quite a bit for largemouth bass fishing (conventional), the Gammi EWG's are similar..but...here is the kicker...I believe that Gami is making a pre-weighted EWG now. Might want to look around for it (recent catalogue my wife threw away I am sure) on some of your retiree's time. Make a nice weighted herring

The phlyz in the pan...

...are of the tube species...
They have two-tubes...one to wear fur n' feathers, the other has the junction tube thru which passes the leader...
I think that's MY IDEA but it's probably wishful thinking!
