Excellent, as is always the case with flies from your vise. Nice photograph too.

Wayne - Can you tell us how you formed and colored the body on this pattern? Nice attention to natural looking detail.

By coloring with a Sharpie then wiping it lightly off then applying UV resin to the body, natural mottling becomes easy. From size 22 midge larva to size 6 Pigsticker worms.
