    ...riffing on the recent posts about Chum fry and mini-ceivers, came up with this. I'm still a beginner at tying so constructive criticism is always welcome!

    Nice looking fly Thomas! I think it's prettier than a chum fry needs to be, especially if your are going through a bunch of them. I like the grizzly. I have thought of taking a sharpy pen to the squirrel tail after I get it tied on to create that same effect. Now go get some SRC's!

    Thomas' resolution this year was to catch fish on pretty flies, so it fits perfectly. Another nice tie with the classic jungle cock eye, except this time on a tube. Nice.
