WOW! Did you invent/create this pattern on your own? It does require a bit of effort, but it looks great.

Yes I did. I went through quite a few prototypes before this one. I'm also going to do one with a hair head, for those who don't like weighted Streamers. This pattern has been killer for me on the Bighorn.

Nice!

I am going to be tying some patterns for my first Montana trip over the next few months, but this one might have to wait, your skill exceeds mine and I only have so much time. Local tiers and their patterns can't be matched by any mail order flies or books. The regions fly patterns and tiers are developed over time and there is no substitution for experience. Thanks you for sharing yours with us.


Take Care.

Very cool name!
