Bill,
This pattern is awesome! I love the tawny brown of the Muskrat Kit Belly Fur. It is just right is color and texture! And the barred ginger tail and thorax go so well with the overall good look of this very buggy looking pattern! Wow! What else is on the play list for the near future?

Outstanding! Definitely a “go to” pattern. I need a whole row of these in my spring lineup.

Thanks for the inspiration. ;)

An excellent rendering, Bill. Mimics many of the nymphs that trout will encounter.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

That's awesome Bill! A great looking general practitioner. Reminds a bit of Hafele's March Brown.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.
