In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

WILD! Very cool design. I think the swept back hackle profile would contribute to a faster decent rate when the fly hits the water. A useful feature when fishing pocket water.

I need a few of these in my box.

Thanks for sharing, and inspiring...
