Really nice job on the fly and photo. You've done an impressive job on the biot body. I like the hook choice.

More please! ;) :D

Paparex, this is great to see. A nice pattern and a very helpful photo. For a first attempt, or any for that matter, you've given an excellent look at what you're trying to get from the pattern. It's much appreciated. I like the saturation of that biot and the quail hackle is really lively looking. Thanks.
