    Freaking set the hook, i'd hit that in a quick minute. How did you get the varied colors of deer hair spun up like that? They look well designed, is that the case or was a bit of luck involved? Damn good looking fly.

    iagree and i would like the ? of how you get multiple colors of deer hair spun around. is it in a specific pattern or do you just see what turns out

    Looks like the hair is stacked, not spun on the hook. Very nicely tied and an excellent photo as well. it looks like it will push a lot of water. Great fly.
  7. Nice bug. Stacked hair, not hard to do kinda time consuming but they sure look pretty, here's a video link.
