Rich...good ones... how long and I see you have circle hooks. They look nicely transparent and you have incorporated some of the classic patterns...the yellow one looks like the Gibbs but with Yak hair.... I like them and wonder if I can do them smaller or would that defeat the purpose of the yak hair...I can only assume yours are big..looking at the hook...

Please do a smaller one, that hook is an eagle claw 4/0 cir.
the main body is flashabou w/the back an belly in yak hair, I threw in a grizzle feather to ad scale to the body, but it might look better w/out the feather. there is no weight to the fly outher than the epoxy/hook.
