Still working on the spun deer hair Green Machine patterns and variations. I like both the shades of green; the emerald and olive. I have some nice long slender red hackles that I am hoping will work instead of the rusty brown. We'll have to wait and see. Also tied a shrimpy nymph. The back is pearlescent sheet.
cheers

Tied this up tonight. Getting the claws right with the zonker strips proved to be more difficult than I expected. The length of the fur on the strips makes it very easy to make the claws too long.

I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out though.

In preparation for the spring, I've been working on a box of patterns that have been successful at Lake Davis in Northern California. Here's a sample of what's going in the box:
