    Looks like it will catch fishes.

    Using superfine dubbing on dries will float them easier though. The ice stuff tends to soak up water. I think superfine is about the easiest stuff to dub on accurately too.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    Very well done, I've tryed tying something similar with the hair perpindicular to the hook shank, but I got probs with getting the hackle to sit right. Do you use smaller feathers for that part? Do you strip one side or leave both sides?
