I made them with dyed hair too and drifted them like giant nymphs. I never caught what I would say was a huge fish on one but I caught some nice size trout and a few small mouth bass also.
Ard I really like this one! Very nice pattern. Did you wrap extra weight into the body or on the hook?
Thanks for sharing that one.
