yeah, i get a big kick outta all the wb variations w/fancy names myself. but they do get too tough to describe without renaming them. but i found this 1 already renamed. sorta like the autumn splendor: conehead rubber leg wooly bugger in specific colors. oh well. here's a pic of my "blue bayou."

Hey Bear,
I took my new 7' 4wt split cane rod to the lake where the LMB was caught
today, and hooked into a huge crappie. That was fun, but the channel
cat and LMB are going to be a tough act to follow. I caught the catfish in
March, trying to see if the bluegill were biting at the local stream. The LMB
was caught while fishing for stocked trout. Kind of a big surprise in both cases .

EDIT: Nice fish, Kruggy! I didn't see that when the page loaded(???).
I like that Blue Bayou, Ken. WB patterns can be a lot of fun to play with!
