Re: "Duncan" Spider

Yikes Alan,
That's a go getter of a pattern! I love the sparsely dressed body! Please tell us that it is a killer!

Re: Black Caddis (and a couple variations)

Ray, The Dark Blue Dun (dyed) Partridge skin is super good looking! I gotta have one! The patterns you show are really good looking!

Carl,

Re: Blue Partridge

Wow Guys,
This is such a good thread with the blue button hole twist as body materials! Our friend Bill Shuck sent me a few patterns very similar to what you guys have done! Talk about a killer pattern! There is something about blue and purple that is so attractive to our finey friends!
