Fantastic! I will definitely add some of these to my spring box. I'm already looking forward to swinging these on my tenkara rod.

Great contribution Scott.

Tied better than Mr. Clouser himself would do it. All good, but the front end is especially excellent.

Scott,
Mee-ooww! Look at this bad boy! You really have the knack! This pattern is a killer! Got anymore in the works?
I am enjoying what you are doing!

ScottP. Howdy;

WOW factor is very high with these 2, I just sat here for a moment soaking the first photo in.
Be interesting to see what the ratio is for hits between the pair.
Size 4??? Nothing subtle when these hit the water.

Fished "jig" style, this could well pass for a damsel in distress ;) .

Superb variation, Scott. I would be tempted to fish the new variation for warm water species (smallmouth bass and carp). I think it would work wonders on both, and the hook-point-up orientation would be perfect for slow water and clear conditions.

No way, I could tye them as nice as you have, but worth trying... ;)

That inverted style I believe would be a nice fly for redfish on the flats down here in Florida. Most guys will just add a single piece of stiff mono back over the eyes to the hook point as a weed guard.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.
