It reminds me of a straggle cat's whisker (variant), but not exactly. Nice fly and I am sure it will do you well. Is that deer on the wing?

The fish weren't really having the streamers today, plus I was targeting browns instead, we went to a different spot. The ES will get another run on Sunday, I hope! I have to tie some more, sent a half-dozen off to Eunan for some actual product testing!

looks similar to a slumpbuster.

Nice variation on materials!

I tie mine up a couple wraps of lead to keep it from falling head down in the water. It gives it a more horizontal appearance in the water on the pause as it sinks.

Awesome that you're catching fish with it!

The E.S. as I tied it does have a good amount of lead wraps on the body, so yeah, it does have a nice horizontal action in the water, and you're the second to say it looks like a slumpbuster, I'll have to check it out! I still need to tie more of these, but I'm really hoping Eunan kills it with these this weekend

Just for fun I might tie a few of these up in white and chartreuse and try them in the saltwater. I'll be highly entertained if they work.
