Re: May fly Honey Dun a V.S. Hidy pattern.

I love these Hidy patterns, but keep thinking they need to be fine tuned to the bugs I see on the stream. What bug do we think is this pattern aimed at imitating, or perhaps better said, evoking?

Re: button hole twist

If you're not dead set on silk you might try DMC embroidery floss. It comes in many colors and is not that expensive. Also easy to seperate into smaller strands. Just a suggestion.
