Looks like it will catch fishes.

Using superfine dubbing on dries will float them easier though. The ice stuff tends to soak up water. I think superfine is about the easiest stuff to dub on accurately too.

Very well done, I've tryed tying something similar with the hair perpindicular to the hook shank, but I got probs with getting the hackle to sit right. Do you use smaller feathers for that part? Do you strip one side or leave both sides?
