    I've been tying Kaufmann's mini-leeches in brown and black mohair. Then I got fancy and mixed the two colors by twisting a strand each of the brown and black mohair. I combed it out before winding, and ended up with a fantastic hairy thing. With a conehead. Did I just tie myself a Hale-Bopp Leech?

    Thanks,

    Well done, I think your very close, if not right on. Your cone head is the only difference, Hale Bopp is usually tied with a round bead. Those are two of my favorite patterns. :thumb YT:smokin
