I haven't joined the flat wing craze, which seems to be the hottest thing in NE FFSW next to the TFO rods. This thing looks like it would move just fine, rather similar to one of those wings.

Nice work sully!;

Well we know that fly has motion!

I like the Varivas hook. The exaggerated sweep should offset the bouyant bucktail being below the heavier rubber on top, a light wire hook could get flipped on it's side or even keel upside down - plus I am thinking the bend will hold fish better than conventional bends. We'll find out this season.
