I like it but I might add a couple of strands of krystal flash as a tail just to make it an upscale Woolly Worm. 8-) ;)

Thanks for the comment Bill. ;) :D

It is a sort of "plane jane" pattern, but sometimes that's what it takes. I'll add some versions tyed with Krystal flash tail, to cover the bases.

That’s not plain Jane-that’s just plain sexy !!!
One of my all-time favorites, Ray - well done.

That is a really lively looking bug. Is that a single feather palmered from eye to bend or is it two separate feathers, body and hackle? Sweet pattern.

That is an incredible looking spider. Trout here would go nuts for it.

Lovely wee fly. May have to attempt a few of those to tempt brookies once we get moved.
