Steve, that is really on point. Nice pattern. I especially like that twisted body.

Gonna miss his music. I'll bet he's already jamming with S.R.V. 8-)

The Band has a new member.
So glad to have the legacy he left us.

That's a killer pattern Steve. I love it!

Should serve you very well. I'm going to tie some up.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Hatter, I've not fished the version with the blue flash yet, though regularly use the same pattern tied with copper or pearl flash, to good result. Getting ready to try the blue though. Let me know if you catch one on it before I do.
