Not too impressed with the thorax, but it's going in the small stream box.

That'll catch a fish or two. It should be in your box!

I like it! Could make a nice stonefly with minimal tweaking.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

For some reason I had initially read the title as "Moose and Squirrel". I must be reverting to my childhood (Rocky and Bullwinkle reference).

Rodger - I really like this pattern. I too have played around with dubbed UNI-Yarn bodies. They make for some nice buggy fishing flies (desirable outcome).
