  2. Nice Work! I just tied a bunch like that but I used a gold cone head....I will post mine soon for comparison/discussion...

  3. That's a really nice looking fly, Skinny. Thanks for posting it- time to pull out the vise!
     
  4. great looking fly. thanks for the post. do you tie a reverse version? it would be great to see one of those. thanks ahead of time.
     
  5. Do you use this fly for SRC's? Is it only in the salt or river as well.
     
  6. You could use it in either salt or fresh. I prefer to tie it with salt water hooks because I never know where I'll be fishing.
     
  7. How do you tie the reverse version?
