    Default Feel free to criticize my Muddled Zonker.

    I tried a few variations and this is where I am now.

    I've tried versions with a red throat and cutting the head more like a sculpin and I'm not sure.

    So what would you change?

    Shorter Collar? (I hate hiding so much of the body color)

    What do I need to work on?

    I'm a big boy and I know I need work so don't sweat letting me know what you think.

    It looks good. The only thing I might change would be to shorten the collar a little, it extends just a little too far back maybe?
    As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!

    Ah, now I see what you mean. With the collar that big make the head a little bigger.

    I'll try it.

    I have also tried a two color head with orange on the bottom that I like. I will post a pic of that.

    Thats bloody cool man! Only thing different I would do is not pack the head so tight maybe one big bunch of hair or two smaller ones, but that thing is awesome good colors and alot of built in motion looks killer!!!

    Eric that looks great-- I'm sure if would work great on a floater but that would be deadly on a short leader at the end of a sink tip.
    Nice job!

    I'll tell ya what, whether that head/collar is too big/small/just right, it is VERY well done. Why, I bet even Larry Dahlberg (Dahlberg Diver) would say its all good.

    Oh, that's right: fish it and you'll find out whether its the right size or not soon enough.
