No real pattern that was followed. I seen something similar in fly tyer mag this month in the "Gaudy Wet fly" article and I liked it. I have really uneducated fish in my local streams, lucky for me, and they probably will try and feed off of this.
anyway here is my messing around tonight.

Hey, not a bad looking fly. Nothing wrong with inventing your own pattern either. If people didn't invent patterns we would still be trying to hit them with rocks.

True enough Dan, I like to veer off the path regularly.

Diggin it! I've always thought we don't see enough Guinea on patterns. I like the contrast it provides. Makes nice soft hackles too. I bet it would work good on our salters.

That's exactly what I thought when I seen the guinea on the web sight. It caught the fishermans eye, now it just has to catch the fish. The feather does have nice contrast and is sturdier than I imagined it before get it in the mail.
Thanks for looking guys/gals.
