Very pretty bait, Steve. Have you fished this in the past? For trout?

Sorry redietz, neglected to list the topping, which is gadwall.

Bill, yes, fishing it right now. Swinging for prespawn redbands in unusually high, dirty water, & it's turning the trick as well as anything right now. It's a small lure, tied in #6 or #8.
