Looks great! Have you been tying for long? I tied one recently just to see if I could and found them fairly easy to tie. I used yellow as my under belly to represent a perch. By chance did you add any weight to the fly? I failed to take that into consideration when I fished it in some faster moving water and could not get it to where the fish were while fishing the Oauchita River for smallmouths last month. I hate using split shot as my casting goes to complete **** when I've tried it in the past and thus slipped it back into my fly box and went with my standard Olive BH Woolly Bugger.

Nevertheless, great job!

Hi flyguys,

It looks good to me. Many people use too much material in their first EP tries but you did a good job.

Frank
