    cirle hook, interesting choice...

    ide cut the front hook off and paint a little red under the head at the back. Great looking fly!!!

    Roger that Rogers....the front hook is just for holding it in the vice.

    The pimped out bit is the Rainy pop head...its painted using a technique called stippling.

    It holds up ok...the pattern itself is pretty well tried, true and tested around here.

    The bottom is stippled as well...very light yellow, gray. IMO, I think the color and design will make a difference over straight white. One only has to look at the color variations of rapalas or bass poppers to make the connection.

    but why the circle hook?

    i used to use #4 owner mosquito and then i ran out and started using a #2 owner mosquito and WOW!!!! i land way more fish on the surface now then i did, i used to just be a searching fly for me but now its a main tactic

    Better and safer hookups...sure the gap is reduced but you can always go to a bigger hook as you did.

    I'll happily pick up a few free samples for testing Big-E, I'll make sure there's photographic evidence!
