Got any pics of that? Sounds cool. I am visually inclined, so that would help me. I have to see it. I have been tying now for one year....I just hit the year mark mid Jan. So I cannot always envision a pattern, without a pic yet. I prefer videos to regular printed instructions. If the fly has just a recipe, with no picture, I do not even attempt it yet. I hear that will come with time.
