Default Free lance streamer

You ever tie a fly that you would be almost ashamed to show anyone,,but you just cant 'undo' it cause it says 'i WILL catch fish ?' I did a couple off the cuff 'my own creation' streamers tonite,,wooly kinda thingy's...was gonna cut them clean and salvage my hooks but I swear,,they look like they will be small mouth killers. IF,,they do,,THEN I'll show ya'll a pic...not till then LOL I just never saw anything quite like them..so,,we'll see.

Let's see it

With exception of clousers, pretty much every streamer I tie is off the cuff.
