    My daughter has long, red hair. When she had it trimmed one time, I kept some for tying. It works great. She was excited when I caught fish with it.

    I'm thinking perhaps Caddis Pubis Pupa pattern, I could be wrong but then he's been posting for years and I have a sort of feel for his nature

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    That made me spit out water jp! I don't want a confirmation on what kind of hair was used, although I'm pretty sure it's kinda obvious. LOL
