This is my daughter's fly. When she chose materials, I just let her go rampant choosing materials. I helped point her into a few directions on design. But for most part this is what she thought up. I just put it on the hook for her. I added madness to the name, since it truly is madness on a hook. But I like it. Think I may even tie a couple of these up and toss them into the fly wallet. Forgot to add the last coat of head cement, so seems a bit off (half dry). Sorry about the picture quality. All that neon/flourescent stuff really glared out. This was the best of 5 photos.
