Great tie, Scott. For those of you who have yet to experience it in person, ostrich herl gets really awesome in the water.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

I'll be trying these for next year's Grannoms. What a great idea.

Scott, about 15 years ago I tied this pattern (very similar) when I first started tying. I tied a pile of them and probably still have a couple. It was a killer for me. Something to revisit.
