Laurie: Awesome looking spiders, that dyed picric hackle turned out great and really contrasts well with both bodies.

For a contrast to the soft hackle types, I tie mine out of foam and use them as an indicator. Bigger fish will sometimes hammer them even into deep fall/winter.
The red post wasn't too popular, so I switched to a orange McFly foam post instead. Dubbing body versions work as well, but are more difficult to float.
