Very pretty bait, Steve. Have you fished this in the past? For trout?
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Sorry redietz, neglected to list the topping, which is gadwall.

Bill, yes, fishing it right now. Swinging for prespawn redbands in unusually high, dirty water, & it's turning the trick as well as anything right now. It's a small lure, tied in #6 or #8.
