Id love to be tying some of that stuff...looks very deadly for those big gator's !
Sorry to hear that.

I find comfort in knowing I'll be helping Ted in his move up into musky country... I'll have paid my dues

There is very little in this sport I can offer you advice on but I've tied a couple dozen so here goes.... The back half is way too compact and doesn't have the hollow tie style. A good Hangtime appears to be very heavy (bulky) but it isn't. Watch the video again and try another one. Ted would have told you this but you are helping him move. That's a true friend.

No. We exchanged words via text :P. He pointed out that I should've spread out the flash more... I've improved. Just too lazy to take more pictures.
