  2. Yes and Yes! This is a sick pattern, gonna tie one within a couple hours.
     
  3. With an orange body, that guy would work great right now on the Deschutes.
     
  4. I can imagine! Those trout would go for a Cheeto on a hook.
     
  5. Just tied one, I think it looks pretty good for a first try.
