Easter & Grouse
Walking through a dollar store, I saw big bags of this stuff used for Easter baskets. Picked up the pink purple and yellow. its like flashabu but stronger. Added a bit of Peacock dubbin, Will try swinging it this spring.

Love it! Beautiful searching pattern. I have no doubt about this fly. You've created a very "catching" pattern.

Nicely done. Thanks for sharing, Lornce.

I'm not usually much for synthetics, but find this fly of yours quite appealing -- very well tied. Bet the brookies will love it too.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

You should also check out the same stores right after Christmas. Tinsels are very cheap then.

Nice use of Easter material! Pink makes a great rainbow pattern.

I have to admit when I picked out filling for the kid's baskets, one blue, one "shrimp color", I did it with post tying intentions in mind.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.
