What a fascinating design. I want to tie and fish this just to see how it behaves in the water. Is the curved profile intended to change the balance of the fly, or simply imply more movement?

Flawlessly executed. Kudos Scott.

Ray,

Thanks. Like a good attractor, it got my attention. Not sure of the reasoning for using the swimming nymph hook; could be to have it ride chest down as you suggested.

Regards,
Scott
